Wall Framing

Once the first-floor walls were in place, the crew could install the second-floor support beams.

Many of the beams were precut.

However,  one large 5 1/4-inch-wide by 24-inch-deep by 28-foot-long beam built up from three 1 3/4-inch by 24-inch LVLs was not. This allowed the crew to verify the length of the span, then cut and fit the beam one ply at a time.

A crane was used to lift into place the panelized second-floor walls, including two rake walls with prefabricated eaves ...

... and a major interior bearing wall.
