Re: GSBN:Loadbearing sb with moisture damage

Chris Magwood, you are a gem...exemplifying perfectly what I said
earlier about what I love about this community of people.

Great idea and very generous of you. I, of course am only speaking for
myself and not for CASBA. I personally think we need both more
formalized and printed (and periodically updated) forms of this kind of
information and a place such as you describe below.

 On a subject related to details talk:

My own details book is reaching the end of its shelf life. I'm
contributing to the CASBA book, which I think will be a great
resource. However, I'm also contemplating doing an update of my book
but offering it for free on the web (or by donation, or some such
thing). Perhaps there is a place for a TLS/GSBN-sponsored site on
which details are posted visually and accompanied by text/debate? I
don't want to undermine the CASBA effort at all, but since there are
so many possibilities and variations and changes happen faster than
books can be published, perhaps we'd all be doing the whole movement
some good by making an open-to-the-public details shop?

If there's any interest in this, I'm happy to throw the contents of
my details book (plus the revisions I'm working on) into the public
domain as a place to start.
