    • Felix and Jen bought up some possible Design Changes
    • They?re looking for a possible different placement of stringers

    • It would cost about the same (Same amount of lumber)
    • Would require more storage area
    • Lowest recommended plan supports 50 lbs/ sqr foot, max of 250 lbs/sqr foot
    • After much discussion everyone decided to keep the current design in light of possible
      storage concerns. It was also brought up that we?ve been using the current design for 25 years
      and haven?t had any incidents related to the stringers etc failing
