This view is from the southwest corner of the home. The main things we see here are the upper level wall and floor framing. The bracing to the right of the gentleman in the salmon colored shirt is where a 12×78 W-shape now extends towards the west and the viewers eye. That beam has a 10′ cantilever parallel to its length and also supports 6′ cantilever perpendicular to it. That beam is in place now so check back for a picture of it.
