I felt the same way, it came apart like it was just tacked.No, not normal, I don't think at least.... I've done alot of framing, but i have limited experience with high winds......I did notice in the video that non of the osb really breaks up, almost like it wasn't nailed, maybe just tacked....Its hard to say with any certainty, but it looks almost like a fake video
I saw that when I went back. The banner was hiding it in the beginning of the video. It's clear if you watch the second playback. Edges should have been blocked and nailed off properly at the bottom of those sheets as well.If you pause the video at about 14 seconds you can see that the very bottom of the braced wall that Lone was talking about didn't even have paneling at that 16" (or so).
Also, in looking through the front building, it looks like no interior walls were braced either.
I wonder if the other side was braced at all.
Toll Brothers?! Well I'll be jiggered.
