Lateral Bracing


Recommended Posts

To All,


I need to draw lateral bracing across deck posts to a second story deck, but I can't figure out how to show these on the drawing...other than superimposing them over the elevation view using CAD tools.  I tried framing members, but it seems they are unable to pivot and I tried to modify a 'ranch' corbel, thinking it might be an architectural block I could explode to use the diagonal brace, aside from the top and bottom supports.


Anyway, I have attached the elevation view of my project, as well as page showing the local requirements for lateral supports and what is expected by local authorities.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you,
