Another Midweek Update

July 20, 2011

Sorry for the lack of pictures, I promise there will be some very very soon. So, what have I been up to? Well, mostly structural work in the kitchen. Taking out the two walls and putting in headers to replace them has been a lot of work. There will be a full recap hopefully this weekend. I am almost done, having hung the bigger of the two headers, a a 12′ long double 2×12 built up header. The smaller 10′ long double 2×10 built up header will hopefully get hung tonight. One big snag though, is that I bought hangers for s4s or smooth four sides lumber, which is basically what you think of when you think of modern lumber. These hangers are designed to fit a 1.5″ wide board, not the rough cut, nearly 2″ wide boards we have. So I either have to find someone who happens to stock rough cut hangers, or cut each ceiling joist down to fit in the hangers. Neither option is particularly appealing.
