2008-Jan-26 - Wooroloo - Tricky Steel Frame Issues
There are a few areas around doorways where it is difficult secure the frame to the slab.

I took photographs of these issues to Rusty at my local hardware and asked for his advice - the before and after photos show the results of these suggestions.

In most cases I inserted packers under the loose stud and created bridging plates that connected to the original bolt down material.

Ross did the welding with his mig unit - my arc welder would merely have blasted holes through the finer steel wall framing metal.

Good results - nice rigid doorways.
