Hello,

I'm trying to get a house up this season but the company we were relying on to sign off on the structural aspects of the design of the building has backed out.  We're aiming for a no-plywood structure (which is about all I can say led me to select the "natural building" forum - I hope this is okay) but otherwise basically a stick-built/studwall structure.  The company that backed out has claimed this is "impossible" (which I don't believe for a second).

I'm working with a general contractor who I basically like and trust and he's said he's not comfortable going forward without some engineering input - and the folks we've reached out to locally don't seem to have any availability/interest.

Are there any engineers watching who have some availability to finish (and certify?) the design?  We're in Vermont but certainly open to working with someone remotely.

Thanks.
