Re: Joist Bearing Depth

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would have the beam built up in the field.  Steel guys are already out
there, doesn't sound like you have an access problem, the cost is probably
less, the joist lead time will likely be shorter, and you wont have to deal
with the field when they roll the joists out backwards and can't understand
why the roof slope is funny  :-)
