Additional Course Details: 

I Will teach this class to both in-person and remote students.  You may take this course 100% online.  I expect all students to attend at the published class times when possible.
This class counts as a design course and as a structural area course.


Students will be required to obtain the NDS timber design codes. I'll explain how to do that for the student rate once class is underway. No textbook is required.
