Test Pocket Successful

Eric spent all day Monday with our structural engineer, Tony Beale, going over how to put 15'6" joists between walls that are 15'0" apart (code says it must rest 3" on each side into the pockets). He planned all of this out in Autocad Monday night until 2am, bought the lumber yesterday and installed a new test joist today, by himself, sucessfully! It takes some brick removal & reconstruction but it's not too bad. We're hoping to find some helpers to get this done in the next couple weeks if anyone is bored....
