Make ceiling beams. We started out wanting 45-degree miter to connect the three pieces, but then realize that could be tricky with the 32-foot span we needed across and only a 40-foot house to do it in highly decided. It might be a better idea just to use black joints and keep it simple. We then made some spacers just to get the idea of what this team is going to look like. You clamp them together, and this also made it easier to glue this thing up with 16 feet. You really need all the help you can get. We raised it up, put some stickers underneath and then we were able to slide in with some glue just one line of glue all the way down the length making sure to put it on the inside, so any squeeze out would be on the inside of the Beam, we then rolled it onto its side, put the two pieces together and then continue to Brad's nail this thing together all the way down about eight inches apart.
It helps to have two people want to line up the boards and want to do the nailing Ali helped out. Here's a look at what the inside of the beam looks like this is going to be the piece that sits over the existing structure of the house. We then stained it with a dark walnut stain only one coat, because this is rough. It really soaked in all that stain. We ended up with a really dark, chocolatey old, looking Dean. We wanted the beam to sit around the existing wall, so it gave the look that it was really built into the house. So we just cut that opening out by hand. We then drilled three-inch holes that we could set junction boxes into in order to mount the lighting that was going to go on this now I didn't show the installation of the lighting, but I did show them the end: simple hole saws, all the stuff. I then put some spacers up on the existing cross. What that did is brought that opening up to the five inches that was the inside of the beam. We didn't go the length of these. I didn't think it was necessary. It just needed to be strong enough to hold the beam itself up. I screwed these on one and a half inches on one side and a half inch on the other highly put some spar urethane on our beam. This gave it some protection and also a nice shine and ivory.
This was the trickiest part. Getting this thing in place at 16 feet, it's really heavy and it's also a nice exact fit that way it looks like it was built into the house. We worked together brought it up at the same time and then just use brute force and ignorance to pound it into place, and it's stuck Ali wasn't quite tall enough to get her side, so we did a little switcheroo halfway through. This is definitely a two-person job. If not, three Brad nailed it in place going right along where we put those spacers and as you can see, we mark them by tape. This way, when the beam was in place, you could still see where your stickers were, and you could still see where any existing wiring was making sure not to hit it. We then installed some lights put the light bulbs in, and it was time for a test and it worked.
