First, inspection of an older brick condo conversion. The wooden back porch is, mostly, in a brick alcove but some exterior posts are held up merely by a beam that stick out of the brick wall (Picture 1). Doesn’t seem like there is any room for a decent cantalever.
Then, the last pictures. During a Draw inspection, this morning. Teardown in Northern Chicago and putting up a new house. The thing is, the structure is the new house is post and beam! Great workmanship.
One question on it. In the last picture, they are installing, instead of floor joists, 2 x 4 frames between the beams for the floor on the 2nd level, secured only with drywall screws. Any SEs out there want to comments?
