Dipaolo Residences, Cypress, CA
Full structural design of two, two-story houses on a narrow 7100 SF lot in Cypress, CA. The main house is 2220 SF and the second house is 1210 SF, plus two car garages for both units. The narrow site presented a challenge for shear wall designs in the Southern California seismic region. Part of the solution was the use of wooden Metal Plate Connected (MPC) portal garage opening frames for both houses. The MPC frames were designed, built and delivered by Trussed, Inc. of Perris, CA, substantially reducing both design and construction time for this portion of the project.
