Catching Up - Part IV: Floor System

Ok, after reading this post you will be up to speed. The last few pictures in this series were taken when I left the job site at 7:30 this morning. Instead of a traditional stick-built floor, we decided to use engineered I-joists. They went up extremely fast, saved us lots of time and labor costs, and gave us the strongest floor you can build.

Laminated beams that support the I-joists

Double laminated beams, 15-ply each

This gives you an idea of the elevation of the back of the house
