Per ASCE 7-05, is "h" in Fig. 6-21 the height of the (rooftop) structure from the base of that (rooftop) structure (i.e. roof elevation of the main/supporting building) to the top of that (rooftop) structure (vs. from grade elevation)? All other "h" references (except for Fig. 6-21, e.g. Sec. 18.104.22.168) would be the mean roof height of the main/supporting building, right?
