First Two Steels In!

  • 18/03/2017

Now that my padstones are in and set, I have taken the plunge and got my steel beams in.

There are two beams, bolted together with spacer tubes between them in order to give rigidity and the correct spacing.

This cavity wall matches the existing building rather than the standard 100mm gap as it will need to extend onto the existing structure when the roof goes on, to create a gable end due to the uneven spacing of the trusses. More will become clear on this later.

I managed to get both of these beams in without assistance, which is handy as I didn’t have anyone around to help.
