  • Typical code – Oregon code
  • Harbor House 1 experienced milder weather conditionsWhile the temperatures vary, they appear sufficiently close for a meaningful comparison.
  • The heating system analysis attempts to use statistical methods remove ambient temperature data as a variable
  • Vertical integration from load and bracing design and layout to stud and truss fabrication through mechanicals and finish
