Today the Arbor for my beloved Quincho Project gets installed. The builders arrived this morning and have begun retrofitting the supporting beams to fit the correct dimensions. The main beams were completely recut at their own expense, so I give them props for realizing their own mistake instead of trying to charge me for it.
In the shot above, they are installing the Main Beams. On top of them, there will be cross beams at 90 degrees and on top of those the rest of the arbors smaller beams at 90 degrees to them. Below, they are re-cutting the small beam supports to fit the correct measurements. We are losing about 12 inches total (6 inches on each side) but it could be a lot worse.
This should give you an idea of the style of the arbor we will have once its completely installed. They left the main beams in place and they are taking the top two layers back to the yard for a final coat of paint before bringing them back tomorrow and installing them. The Quincho Project continues!
