Owner & GC didn't believe me when I told them there'd be a tie-beam.

I build some pretty big doors, big enough that I can hardly hang them alone when installing. I told this builder we were going to have an issue with a tie beam. He didn’t take me seriously until I had to bring in a fork lift, cut and reinforce the tie beam. It was a great door, rather still is. I try to put “speak easy s” in all my doors if I can. Anyway, I can’t find a shot of the finished door. As a side note, some of my door projects won’t have a final finished shot because I usually left someone behind to punch out and I never came back to take the shot =/
