Installing the New Header

Bob was over last night, finishing off the remaining bit of work on the joists… making way for the new header. It’s the first of two large pieces that replace the old/warped boards tha twe took out, a few days ago.

I’d move the bottle jack in place, and Bob would pound the board into place. We worked our way down the board, getting the thing pretty snug and tight. We only had enough time to get the one piece in place, but we’ll be tackling the second piece this weekend.

It’s a really nice feeling to have this area of the house/basement even stronger than it was before. Come this weekend, it’ll be stronger yet.
