Temp walls and supports
Right now the entire project area is a sea of temporary supports. It makes moving around, building, etc. difficult. I can’t take them down until after the framing inspection which should be this week (Wk of 5-Nov). I’m just waiting on my very expensive LVL hanger where Beam 2 joins Beam 1. Working around these walls has been a huge challenge, especially where Beams 1 and 3 are run.
Everywhere that a load bearing wall was coming out, I had to build temporary walls to support the structure above. In most cases this requires a temporary wall on either side of the wall that’s being removed. In my project I have 2 walls that run parallel to each other so I have a series of 3 temporary walls holding up the floor above. All of the temporary walls will stay in place until after my framing inspection. Once the county inspects my framing, I will be able to remove the temporary walls and put my beams under load.
