Our steel meisters were back today (which meant getting up early, d'oh!), and it was just as exhausting as the last time. Everything went smoothly, which is always a plus, and for your pleasure and entertainment we took a lot of pictures.
Cut the post ...
... and gone it is.
Critical inspection of the work site.
In with the new beam ...
... and columns.
The pictures may not show it, but having removed the post makes such a difference, because it opens up the beer hall to the bar, and you don't feel like you have to crawl through a maze to get into the main dining area.
