  2. Uplift loads include an increase for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  3. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
  4. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10d x 1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2 long. See other nail sizes and information.
