I am looking for ideas on how to creat shear walls in a building built in 1950 out of eight inch logs oriented in a vertical fashion. There are no interior walls to use. The 8 foot walls sits on a concrete foundation and 2x8 sub floor with rim joists, the roof is a site built truss. The fix has to remain "consistent with the historic" look of the structure, so no replacing sections with BWP's. I was considering creating a BWP out of the corner's with rod's or cables. Any idea's on making that work?
