An Alliance is Made
A new and improved lumber supplier stepped up to the plate and the guy's belting my fastballs out of the park like I'm a second string pitcher for the Latvian Nerf Softball Team. Such a relief when someone actually gives a shit (see this, this, and this to get up to speed). My rep was a contractor for 35 years and then went to work for the lumber supplier that he used for all those years. All around good karma with that circle. He sent my plans to his structural guy who is drawing up a brand spanking new set of framing plans using the engineered structural members that are appropriate for the job. Everything in apple pie order. Now I can relax, drink a bottle of Old Crow and go sledding.
