    There is nothing but a small roof above this entry vestibule. I am having a nightmare of a time figuring out what needs to be fireproofed vs. what does not. Can someone please help me! rules of thumb for fireproofing? It is not supporting an occupied floor, but is supporting a roof?

    What is the construction type? Can you call it a canopy?

    What type of construction - is the roof members 20 feet above finished floor elevation - look at footnotes in T 601...... it can be a lifesaver and a dagger at the same time.
