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-pound steel beams.
This side of the beam will be filled in 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.
