I have a two story wood framed building. the second floor cantilevers 4'-0" past the wall below. there are segmented shear walls that occur at the cantilevered portion of the second floor. the shear walls sit on a Glu-lam which is supported by a steel post at both ends. Am i allowed to anchor the holddowns for the shear wall into the glulam? i have Simpson HDU2 holddowns which require a 5/8" diam. anchor and a 18" deep glulam. will i have enough depth to develop the anchor?
