Re: garage

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Edward,

        Check out wood construction.  You might try something like
double 2x12 joists with 2" or 3" decking (or even 2x4 on edge nailed
together as the decking).  You should be able to get lots of information
on short span timber bridges that could solve your problem.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson
