Bracing and tie downs on a raised house- Client Case Study
See the progress shots below for bracing installation on a raised house renovation we completed recently in Brisbane’s suburb of Camp Hill.
The owner builder needed a push with his project, and some friendly advice so he could move forward with the build.
Ply bracing provides lateral strength to the building and tie down connections are installed to lock the building into a solid unit to prevent the structure from pulling apart in a freak weather event
Connecting the old house frame to the new lower storey was done using 30 x .8mm strapping at both ends of the bracing ply unit
Materials used: Bracing ply, strapping, 90 x 35mm pine, coach screws (www.bunnings.com.au)
