Structural - Cladding a Steel Lintol in Oak - Fern Bank

Sometimes architects have strange ideas best known to themselves. For this project we were asked to take a new oak beam and cut it down to sit against a steel boot lintel, with a soffit return underneath.

The Oak beam cut in two. A lip has been cut along the length of the oak beam so it overhangs the steel lintel for a soffit return. Perpendicular angled slots are also being cut to accomodate the bracing fins on the steel boot lintel.
