Main Beam Above Kitchen

The main beam above the kitchen is up now. My best buddy RW was here for a visit and helped me install it. It was great to have some help. We got it installed in about an hour; whereas it would have probably taken me at least a half a day to do it by myself.

The beam actually consists of three separate LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) beams that are nailed together. It sits in the beam-pockets (described in an earlier post) on top of a stack of 1/2" and 1/8" steal shims.
