    Default Cantilever and Tributary Area

    Situation, Canadian code requires that

    cantilevered floor joist extend 6 times the length of the cantilever to a double header joist when loaded by a roof.

    The loading in this case when it is most severe is when the truss run in the same direction as the joist i.e. to ward the front of the home..

    I think this distance could be less if say the cantilever was supporting only a gable end and not all the trusses. Tributary area is significantly less in the second case and therefore so is the load.

    Any thoughts?
