1. It is really important that the front of the building is protected because thats where all of the waves are mostly likely going to hit first. You need to cover up any openings such ass doors & windows to prevent the water from getting inside the building.
2. Since these sectional drawings cut through the middle looking at both sides, you see the the cast iron pintle which keeps the building balanced, the floor beams, floor griders running across and the floor planking which is the decking.
3.In case of a storm, what we might want to do is maybe try to get the wooden columns temporarily covered with some sort of membrane to keep the columns from being present to water because when you change the moisture of a wood, it can get damaged which can cause problems later on. We want to avoid those problems.
