Do you mean the required wind speed or loading? It's not clear. Same with snow and seismic. What exactly do you need?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm submitting Bldg plans to county for approval of 12'x18' shed to put washer/dryer.
They need to know structural data on bllg;
I think It's all standard info from mechanical eng handbook. Load bearing strength of floor built using 2x6 on 16" Ctr spans if 6'
If you could see form an plans you'd understand
I was hesitant to submit due to communication
