Project Name: Withers Guest House

Architect: Modern House

Project Manager:  Logan Miller 

Project Engineer:  Logan Miller

Project Notes: The Withers Guest House is a 1-story structure on a slope, framed over a crawl space.  The very thin cantilevered roof over a wall of glass on the uphill side required steel wide flange roof beams and a rigid diaphragm to distribute the lateral loads back into the building where solid shearwalls were allowed.  The 4” deep rear stair landing cantilevers out 10 feet and was modeled in a finite element program to properly analyze the support of the fixed-end steel stringers on one side of the cantilever and ensure owner comfort was maintained.

Status: Under Construction
