Hiding Post/beam Bucket


I tore down some walls which were hiding some posts. One in the field i am wrapping with drywall. The other in question I could either build it out and wrap in drywall to hide the bucket or just wrap the bucket itself and make the wall below continuous ?

What do you folks think ?

thanks for any input !

Do I see that the Glu-Lam that the bucket is holding up has been thoroughly compromised?

That is some scary ****.

I was wondering the same thing, it also sort of looks like someone packed it with 2x4 and 1x4 to make up for a mis cut. Probably what you said though unfortunately.

Re: Hiding Post/beam Bucket


wrap the bucket and bring it straight down (finish the packout) or get creative and create an elliptical arch and take off the 2x packing the post-that would hide the bucket.

I don't like that idea b/c the theme around doesn't match an elliptical arch.

is that a glulam in the bucket turned sideways? maybe the post was too short OR it's bridging two glulam's above (?)
