There are two major structural beams that we need to install this week. Both beams are parastrand beams.
One beam supports the mid-level flat roof at the back of the living room. This 24 ft long drop beam is over the sliding glass doors.
The other beam is the ridge beam in the center of the Atrium. This is a unique flush beam as it has a piece of angle iron attached to each side of the beam, which will support the SIPs on each side of the center beam.
Larsen Steel provided us with the two pieces of angle iron, which Bryan picked up at their fabrication shop in Gilroy.
