    Clips and strapping, roof nailing. If you look at Florida code you'll be disgusted by all the "continuous load path" stuff required.

    Single-family homes in the U.S averaged 2,491 sq ft in size in 2020. This size requires between 117-127 trees to construct.

    Just a curious factoid.​

    Looking good!
    Take lots of pictures of the strapping while it’s visible. When it comes to homeowners insurance that will qualify for a discount.
    In my case, Homesite required a notarized document by a licensed general contractor. You may want to hit up your contractor for that doc before he disappears 😀

    Roofing sheets are 1/2 "

  • Tiretyme
    commented on 's reply
    Definitely agree with that!! Root structure is so important in keeping bluff from washing. Maybe trim them back a tad? Still going to be fabulous regardless

    It's 9 feet above the pad, yeah the view is nice, would be better if I could take the pines down on the bluff but erosion could be a problem if we did that.

    LOL probably need some padding around steel post too.

    Might pay to put some steel post by those house supports, so she "learns" and it only cost you one one thing to fix (Car) as opposed to knocking the house down. (Hopefully she doesn't' read this site, my apologies in advance if she does. :-)).

    That’s an awesome view!! You’re going to love it!!
    Maybe I missed it, but how far off the ground is that beauty? Looks 10-12 feet?

    I'll have to check on that, I'll get back to you.

    The main reason for having it is for the grocery shopping, wife will back in under the house (I'll have to teach her how to do that) and unload the shopping on the lift, then it goes straight up to the pantry.

    Hey OP, what is the thickness of those roofing sheets? 1/2", 5/8"? 3/4" must cost a fortune today.
