Eleven Glulam beams were used to construct the first part of the roof. The longest beams were 42 feet in length and weighed 1000 lbs.
I paid for the beams and then raced ahead and waited for delivery.
That’s a lot of planks and beams. Wasn’t cheap either.
I was quite happy the beams lowered into their seats without any problems.
Beams weigh about 1000 pounds. It was uprising how fast we got them up there.
Secured the beams with 2 x 6’s so they wouldn’t shift.
I had help with the lowering of the beams. My cousins and a kindly gentleman who was interested in the project and stopped by for fun.
