Support that beam!

While we had Matt staying with us we put his skills and energy to good use! As mentioned previously one of the main beams in the bar needs a bit of extra support because an old repair looked dubious. 

  Owen was keen to use green oak and so we picked some up I in the van and he planed it down and draw knifed the corners.

  
  They had to jack up the beam in order to get the new one under tightly. 

   

  

 Matt and Owen cut the tenons and mortises and then assembled all the joints. 

   

  

 So, beware if you visit and we discover you have skills….!
