Maple Creek steel installation continues

If you’ve been following the progress on the cantilevered deck in Maple Creek, you know that one challenge has been to securely anchor the steel beams on the steep slope. Terry Bocian at Houseworks Construction has been using all of his ingenuity in order to insert the steel members into the existing wood framed structure without disturbing the interior finishes. A huge shout-out to Houseworks for figuring out this complicated construction. http://www.houseworkscc.com

The whole office made a field trip to observe the steel being lifted by a crane. This is Howard Miller on the scaffolding.

More steel for Maple Creek

More progress to report on the cantilevered house and deck on a steep slope in Maple Creek. Eric & Terry with Houseworks Construction will be maneuvering a 450-pound steel beam into position. Next up are the diagonal struts!

Interrupted by the architect, Terry and Eric prepare to install one of two 450# steel beams.

This side of the beam will be infilled with a wood nailer for shear transfer from the sheathing to the steel.

This side of the beam will be securely blocked and strapped to the floor structure for added shear strength.
