Hey Gregwor,

I had one question regarding the cleats you used in your beef up.

It looks like you have engineered I-Beams there where the web is OSB and the flanges are 2x3's

It looks like you cut the top flange (2x3) to get the cleat in. It seems okay since your sort of filling back in the gap with the cleat, but just wondering if that may be an issue?

I'm pretty sure with metal i-beams, cutting a hole or notch into the web is okay, but cutting the flange is a no-no.

And update, but not studio related.

So after my doctor told me that he was out of ideas for what could be causing my wrist pain, I visited a physiotherapist. It was an hour long visit and he found the problem!!! The capitate bone in my wrist was dislocated. Somewhat strange how the xrays and ultrasounds I had didn't expose the issue but I suppose when I was getting those tests done, my hand was flat on the table which would have hidden the issue. Anyway, he used high velocity/low impact to push the bone back down into position and for the first time in so long, I feel no pain. I have it all bandaged up to both hold the bone down in place and to also limit my wrist movement as large movements could encourage the bone to fall out of place again. In a few days I go visit him again to learn exercises that will strengthen everything around the bone. This will ultimately keep the bone in place.

I can't express how happy I am. It has been very very depressing. Also, I'm renovating my wife's hair salon and plan to start my floor prep/epoxy sooner than later.

Greg
