  1. Hello, Mechanical engineer here who is building his own house and will be doing the majority of the structural calcs and drafting, then handing them over to a PE for review and stamping. This is both for cost savings and personal interest / challenge. We will have a Geotech engineer doing soils testing to provide me that data. I specialized in loads and stress analysis, but not so much in the civil realm. I wondered if anyone could point me to some resources on how to get started doing the foundation and overall analysis for the roof / trusses. This will be under the 2015 IRC. I have looked around for books on residential house design and engineering methodology, but haven't found much. Most of them seem to be focused on larger civil projects, such as skyscrapers, bridges, etc. Thanks!
