Another New Beam
October 20, 2008
Here is the beam in the garage. It's made up of three gluelam beams nailed together for a finished size of 5 1/4 in by 7 1/4 in by 15 ft.
Luckily we had a relitively easy spot to install it. We were able to slide it in over the beam in the kitchen.
It took some work to get all the nails out of the way (the beam kept hitting them) that were holding the upstairs floor down, but we eventually got it all the way in past this point.
