Has anyone detailed this? Got a bearing wall situation where the client wants to use steel studs (with parapet) at the exterior walls, but still wants exposed wood roof framing. I am envisioning using smaller bolts through the ledger into the studs for bearing, blocking for lateral transfer to shearwall. Any pitfalls you ran across?
