  1. I build these kind of buildings in KC. The newer designs call for lots of "shear walls" on the lower floors but the "skin" does not get installed until later and if the bracing gets removed too early, like this one had happen, this is the result. Clearly just having the building sheathing on is not enough! This video definitely gave me pause!
