Imagine how I felt having to fork out 5K for the steels alone! Good to know though that if there's ever a hurricane and an earthquake at the same time we have somewhere safe to stand.Un-bloody-believable! The beam will be heavier than the load it's taking. What a waste.
I hear what you're saying. I was shocked too when I saw it. So even if it's crooked and not completely level you think that ultimately it will be safe?I'm guessing the total load on the column is something like 10 or 12kN. The brick column itself will take quite a bit more than that so it's not going to fall over, but, well, just but!
BCO can't come out today, so sent them some pictures. Be interesting to hear what they say.
