LVL roof beams


We built scaffolding in the morning so that we could walk around and work on the roof section without using ladders. This saved us time moving ladders around, and was much safer with a large platform to work on.We added the rim joists, and the LVL beams that span the 24 foot area of our building. Each large beam, is made up of four lvl beams that we hoisted up there with just the five of us. On Saturday we got a special visit from our shop professor, and some of the graduate design and build students came out to help us.
