I've been hovering around here for awhile. A lot of good information! I'm a Superintendent of an apartment complex. It's closing out and the amount of overage is ridiculous! Ill be building a house for myself in the next year or so. My question is, I have many 18" tall 1 3/4" LVLs
Wow... What else did you 'get'?I got unit of Doug fir 2x10's for headers. Stair stringers are a good idea. My first and maybe last post on this site. Thanks.
