I have a wood framed project with 4" brick veneer. The veneer bears on a shelf on the foundation wall and extends 42' tall. Per code we can only go about 33' without needing a releiving angle. Has anyone attached a relieving angle for clay masonry brick to wood framing. Neither me or my boss have a good feeling on attaching the releiving angle to the wood, and it will likely increase our header sizes to maintain an L/600 deflection and the releiving angle. The wall construction is 2x6 at 16" o.c with 1/2" exterior sheathing and 3" cavity between the sheathing and rear face of the veneer.
