The Build

Removing walls on the main level resulted in structural alterations to the house. Therefore, to conform to the existing structure a solid 32 foot-long steel “I” beam weighting over 4000 pounds was used to support the second floor, thus, eliminating the need for mid spam support posts. It took a crane, 10 employees, and 8 Hydraulic material-lifts to insert this solid structure into the newly prepared beam pocket. Gas, water lines were re-routed and fed through “I-Beam”.
