Pathetic really, how elated we were to see the first parallam beam in. The thick laminated wood beam runs horizontally from next to the front door out to behind the house where it will someday support the upper floors above the workshop and one side of the new deck extension.

It’s the only beam currently in place, a teaser, just Hygema showing us what they can do. Amazing to consider they’ll have to cut and manhandle every one of those beams piled in our yard, starting with the first floor, wrapping around the house, and moving upwards.
