Architecture and pressure

By the way, Geoff's dad is an architect, and one time he explained to Geoff and me that there are certain architecture rules for planning enough floor area into a building in order to withstand a certain estimated weight (estimated max capacity + furniture). There is wiggle room, obviously, by building in additional support structures into the frame of the house, but in general you have to allot for more area in a library building, say, than inside a regular house.

--DAMN! Had I remembered that earlier this year, I would have included it into my architecture project.
