Bracing requirements for small Wikihouse

Hi team,

Designing a small wikihouse build (8.4m x 4.8m) - and had a question about bracing.

Per the Wikihouse design guide:

As a general rule, you should have a bracing wall every 4.8m, if possible.

We are looking at a 6.6m span and then a 1.8m span - would that be okay?

Hi @lachlan , is the structure 1 storey? If so I don’t see particular concerns. The detailed numbers depend on the actual wind/earthquake load of the specific place, but the geometry seems achievable to me.
