Yes, the panels are all intentionally removable and intended to be replaced.
With each bracket, that adjusts vertically...they also adjust side to side.
Also there are spring loaded clips made of stainless that put a forward
pressure against the stone that allow us to adjust for plane and plumb.
On the under side of each bracket is a small L shape piece of metal the
stone rests on. We are using 1/16" horseshoe granite shims to keep the
joint consistent as we adjust the brackets. Its not thinset and mortar, but
any stone setter would understand and take to this within a short time. Today
was my first time working with this system and I actually got quite a few
pieces up. I'll try to get some better close ups of the brackets and framing
and report back either thurs. night or friday.

I just thought of this, and I personally thought it was funny, but this system
we are using is like the TLS on steroids lol

We have started a kitchen remodel which is pretty interesting. The wall seen in the first photo is the wall between the dining room and the kitchen. This wall carries the load of half of the roof of the second story, brought down through the attic above the kitchen, and down onto the steel I-beam in the basement below. The engineer gave us a spec for a flitch beam, which we have installed in the attic. This beam spans the opening between the kitchen and dining room and bears on two parallams at either end, which then transfer the load down to the I-beam where it is bearing over the block walls in the basement.

We built shoring walls (in the basement, one in the kitchen, one in the dining room and one in the attic) to hold up the roof while we got the flitch beam into place. We used come-a-longs and chain to lift it in place.

I'll have some more shots of this space soon. We have it insulated and closed in now, and we are getting ready to order the heating mat for the floor.

L.T. Didn't mean to jump on top of you. I recognize your efforts and have
been there many times. Great pics bro! I gotta get some dinner and climb
in bed. Wish I could hang out later tonight.

Hi Rick,

Here is another photo. It is showing Eddy while he drills the holes for the carraige bolts that are going to assemble the flitch beam. There are two 1 3/4" X 9 /2" LVL's with a piece of 1/2" X 9" steel in between. I think the steel and the LVL's and the bolts all together probably weighed a bit over 400 pounds, maybe closer to 450.

Hey LT-

In that last pic in #63 it looks like you're putting fat mud right on dimensional lumber-but in previous pics the curb is wrapped in paper and wire? Never seen it done like that, am I seeing things right?

figured it out on my own-its to screed off. i need to stop pouring curbs.
