In order to have the open concept space that we wanted, we needed a beam that supported the structure of the house but Evan wanted it to also be a design element. He went to a buddy who ran a lumberyard (shoutout Jeff!) and he hooked us up with some beautiful reclaimed maple and yellow pine beams that E turned into this post and lintel support. It replaces a wall that used to close the stairs in and support the second floor joists. Ben made a reappearance and helped us get this monster of a support system in place. It fit! Then we had a demolition dance party.
At this point, we also hired some help. Evan had already framed the wall out but we asked someone to come in and hang/mud the drywall.

I don’t think the pictures do this massive gorgeous beam justice. Also, I still have no idea how you managed to get it in place.
