Where openings are allowed or need to be protected for a certain percentage of the length of a wall (705.8 openings relative to property line, 707.6 openings in fire barrier walls), what happens if the wall has small offsets in plan? Does each segment need to be counted as a separate wall?
Suppose the offset is 3 inches? 12 inches? What if it is 3 feet? Suppose there is an alcove for a recessed door? The door could be nearly 100% of the recessed wall, but only 2% of the exterior building dimension.
If this is addressed in the CBC, please tell me where to find it. I can't find it anywhere!
