Recently, two memos from separate engineers (one in Illinois and one in Texas) were forwarded from component manufacturers to SBCA staff.  In both cases, these memos contained what SBCA believes are misunderstandings regarding changes to Southern Pine lumber design values. Component manufacturers are encouraged to read through these memos and SBCA's responses.
