Walls at Window Height

Additional cast-in-place lintels are being constructed now that all the walls have reached window height.  I have previously discussed the process shown in the photos below in an earlier posting - click here

The only difference from the previous cast-in-place lintels is that I have added metal retaining straps that will be secured in the concrete and extend out the top of the lintel to hold additional wood beams that span the width of the window opening (stay tuned).
