The iBeams have been brought out of storage today! The first job was to nail on a whole load of small OSB pieces at both ends of the beams in order to provide a solid fixing surface for the metal brackets to tie down the rafters onto the walls!

The other job was to drill 21 holes in the webbing (as they call it, the thin material in between the top and bottom flanges) to let the fresh air in for our air conditioning system. It turned out that we have 22 holes!

Now to get critical and cut them to exact lengths! Tomorrow’s job!
