What options for main framing spacing?

Your options could be a very wide range, however we try to control this in design to give you the support you need without an increased cost. This will depend on building width, snow load requirements or framed opening requirements in side walls. Wind speed will also have an effect on how wide the spacing must be.
A normal building in a no snow load area, the use of 30 foot spacing works well. For a 50 psf snow load area you may have less expense using a 20 foot spacing. In high wind areas of 150 mph and greater, you are best keeping the frame spacing around 20 feet.
Frame spacing depends on the use and environmental conditions, Some times they just don’t agree and compromises may have to be reached.
