The structural enginner I was referred to is a flake. Instead of saying
"No thanks, your project is too small and you are too plebian", he says
"Hello... Yes... Can I call you back?", and then he doesn't. How Hollywood.

Does anyone out there know of a structural engineer in Los Angeles
familiar with studio issues that I can consult with?

Thanks,
David

What's the question? Is it a framing question or an acoustical question. If
its just framing of a home studio, ask a roof truss company ... they do a set
of calcs for every truss package they sell ... and could probably reccomend a
small project engineer. If that doesn't get you there, ask a residential
contractor who he gets to sign and seal his remodel plans. Around here there
are lots of engineers who work full time (at some place like the local
electric authority) who moonlight reviewing small residential work ... costs
between 200-500 bucks to get a framing plan reviewed, marked up, and then
signed and sealed. Such a guy should be able to give you quick answers as to
proper beam and column sizes, minimum fastener strength, wind load strength,
etc.

Here is what I need to find out from a structural engineer.

In my garage, at a height of 8 feet, currently there are 5 2x4s holding
up the walls in one direction, 2 2x4s in the other direction, and 2
1x6's diagonally crossing. I want to replace these supports with metal
tie rods.[Post-production clients need it pretty ya know.] The pitched
roof as well as the walls will have 2 layers of drywall added to them.
How many tie rods do I need and where do they go?

Depending on how I support the walls and roof of the inner "room", I may
need some help there to.

Thanks,
David
