The lumber for the temporary support walls was the first of four deliveries today. Bonus: we get to keep the 2x6s once this portion of the project is finished.
The dumpster was delivered next. (Use your imagination to picture a dumpster.) Then...the steel! The basement will have 4 new beams and 4 new columns. The beams are W8 x 13 and W8 x 18. "8" indicates that the beams are eight inches deep. The 13 and the 18 refer to the "pounds per foot of length". Another small load of lumber was the fourth delivery of the day.
