So let me get this straight. This giant steel girder: http://www.dnalounge.com/backstage/log/2012/07/door1.html holding up the floors above it was deemed inadequate, however this two inch thick allthread: http://www.dnalounge.com/backstage/log/2012/06/thread.html is somehow more up to the job? Or is it just spot reinforcement for the bar, and it only SEEMS completely crazy?
That girder is deemed adequate. They are on opposite sides of the room.
Ah, that makes more sense. The spot where that rod is anchored on the second floor does look a little anti-climactic, however. But hey, it's not their money, right?
