Sucess vs engineering


Recommended Posts

This structure is abt 65yrs old with a 2/12 roof. this is the interior of garage.

Obviously the engineered beam is new; glue and drywall screwed.

I had never seen concrete blocks laid up like that either.

Not really the blocks strength axis but better than being able to see right through the hollows like I've seen a time or two.

Is it really an engineered beam. The photo looks more like a bunch of 2 x 6 glued and screwed than a real engineered beam.
