Chase Street Project

Exterior siding work is almost complete now.  The interior insulation work continues, plumbing and electrical rough-in work is complete, and sheetrock work begins this week.  Got some great photos of the front of the house this weekend.  The steel stair stringers have been installed on the front porch.  The web for these stringers is 1/2" thick plate steel that was water-jet cut using digital files sent to the fabricator.  Kirk Williams then worked his magic to weld flanges on all sides of the web, following the profile of the steps.  Kirk then clamped this unit onto the main steel beams and field-welded the connection.  After some clean up work and paint, the connection is seamless.  The inside faces of the beams have steel tabs to anchor the wood deck framing.
