During Episode 9, Ty talked about the importance of a continuous load path. So what is a continuous load path? Ty explains in this episode that it’s like a chain that ties the house together from the roof to the foundation. It’s extremely important during strong weather conditions like hurricanes (or willy willy as called in Austrailia) or high wind.
Ty’s First To The Future home is being secured by metal connectors that are stronger than toe nail connections. With high impact windows, a metal roof, and the continuous load path, this First To The Future home is ready for a willy willy.
