Books on conceptual wood design

Books on conceptual wood design

Books on conceptual wood design


Can you please refer me to books on the behavior and conceptual design of wood-framed houses? Not framing books for people who wanna build their houses, and not books conclosive on individual wood components design. I am looking for design of whole buildings covering conceptual design.
I highly appreciate your input.

RE: Books on conceptual wood design

Nice reference, SRE. Thanks.

RE: Books on conceptual wood design

Thank you very much. A valuable book indeed!

RE: Books on conceptual wood design

The USDA Forest Service has a wood handbook. It's not a design manual per se. I've found it useful, however, I've read that there are some differences between it and the NDS.


FEMA also has many free publications for designing houses in coastal zones and retrofitting houses for wind and floods. FEMA P-55, P-312, P-301, P312, P-550


SRE- I have the manual you posted but never realized they have manuals going back nearly a century. Excellent historic references. Thanks.
