What do you think those beams weigh?
not sure, BUT, ones missing a jackstud
The post is notched to accept the beam, I'm guessing so that it lines up with the other studs. The reason it looks wrong is because you're looking at the back side of the other one and the cut is nice and tightmust be the camera angle.
I switched from 8" to 4" right there for the granite mantle that is on order. Like my 2x4 supports :laughing:What's the bond beam all about? open to accept the mantel?
I wish i did more fireplaces. One every few years isn't enough
