We've started construction of timber frame home in Canandaigua, NY this month that will involve several phases. At the end of August we will install 4 beam lines for the basement that will include 2 flitch plate beams. Flitch plate beams combine the strength and stiffness of steel with the versatility of wood. A steel plate is sandwiched between pieces of framing timber and bolted together, capable of supporting higher loads and spanning greater widths.
