Structural Design of Wood Framing
for the Home Inspector
This article for home inspectors addresses elements of above-grade structural systems in residential construction. The residential construction material most commonly used above grade in North America is light-frame wood; therefore, we'll focus on structural design that specifies standard-dimension lumber and structural wood panels (i.e., plywood and oriented strand-board sheathing).

Many elements of a home work together as a system to resist lateral and axial forces imposed on the above-grade structure and transfer them to the foundation. The above-grade structure also helps resist lateral soil loads on foundation walls through the connection of the floor system to the foundation. Therefore, the issue of system performance is most pronounced in the above-grade assemblies of light-frame homes. Within the context of simple engineering approaches that are familiar to inspectors, system-based design principles are addressed in this article.
