Here are just some of the customizations you can make to your bays:

  • Remove (skip) individual vertical standards (legs)
  • Remove (skip) any bay side
  • Extend vertical standards (legs) above or below the bay level
  • Add ledgers to any node level
  • Add bracing anywhere
  • Create a planks-only bay
