One of many additional features of this particular home is the installation 7/16″ O.S.B. sheathing not only on the exterior of the home, but also on the interior of exterior walls along with on the porch ceilings.
This in conjunction with continuous steel cables from the foundation to the top most wall plate, steel straps on headers and trusses, and steel uprights/anchors in the masonry walls create a structurally sound home.
