Another Big Column

In order to support the corner of the stairway that leads up to the loft I've had to put another big column in the basement. This one was made out of solid dimensional lumber as well, and sits on top of a pad footing. It provides support directly under the floor joist and also goes up on both sides of the floor joist. This gives a large, solid area on the main floor to support the bearing wall that, in turn, supports the top of the stairs to the loft.
