This was a very non physical weekend.
I really have a lot of design work to do on the front wall.
The measurements we took of the door were lacking in a few area so I needed to spend about an hour on site checking out a few aspects.
Back home I drew up plans to modify the door frame to fit in to the 2.7 metre walls and to also hold the stained glass fan light I bought many years ago.
I also drafted up a plan for the bay windows and calculated the position of the door frame and intersecting walls.
Over the bay windows I have ended up needing to span a distance of 3.1 metres.
I planned to span the entire front wall with a PCF 150 beam but was unsure if it could cover the 3.1 metres.
On Monday I popped around to Dave Levall for a bit of structural engineering advice.
Now I am ready to purchase my H3 pine and make a start next weekend.
On Wednesday I ordered my timber from Midland Timber, picked the majority of it up two hours later and some LVLs on Friday.
