I'm designing a 2 story wood framed, brick veneer building with a roof deck. I would like to use a 4' tall parapet wall as the rail. How can this parapet wall be laterally supported? Should I balloon frame the second floor walls to use continuous cantilevered studs throught the parapet? Is there an easy bearing condition for the roof joists with balloon framed walls? Thanks
