Its all about Energy Efficiency and Conserving Natural Resources when using a Post Frame Building option with the added benefit: Post Frame Buildings are also Wind and Earthquake Resistant.

  •  Lateral Loading caused by Severe Storms and Earthquakes
    • The design of buildings must account for wind loads, and these are affected by wind shear. For engineering purposes, a power law wind speed profile may be defined as follows:

      power law wind speed profile may be defined as follows

      where:

      \ v_{z} = speed of the wind at height \ z
      \ v_{g} = gradient wind at gradient height \ z_{g}
      \ \alpha  = exponential coefficient
Post Frame - Lateral Design - Building Diaphragm
Post Frame provides lateral load resistance, creating a unique building diaphragm that makes the light wood frame comparable in strength to light steel and concrete structures.

 

Summing all the above  information up:  Lateral Loading on a Building is the pressure caused by Wind on the Sides and Roof of a Building.  Which is especially important to me since the buildings location will be in the Midwest which is also Tornado Alley and I do not want to be forced to rebuild after a Severe Storm.

Rear Stair Way for Rooftop Access is also the addition of a Modified Flying Buttress that resists the lateral forces pushing a wall outwards (which may arise from stone vaulted ceilings or from wind-loading on roofs) by redirecting the Lateral Forces to the ground.

What the untrained eye might see as a Rear Stair Way for Rooftop Access is also the addition of a Modified Buttress that resists the lateral forces pushing a wall outwards (which may arise from stone vaulted ceilings or from wind-loading on roofs) by redirecting the Lateral Forces to the ground.

  • buttress is an architectural structure built against or projecting from a wall which serves to support or reinforce the wall. Buttresses are fairly common on more ancient buildings, as a means of providing support to act against the lateral (sideways) forces arising out of the roof structures that lack adequate bracing.
