how are the I beams secured to the wooden framing ?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Supported by exposed steel columns and beams, this cantilevered second story is raised quite high due to the generous height of the living space. An outdoor terrace sits under the projection, capped by a very nice wood ceiling. The second story's exterior walkways in metal grating allow people upstairs to sense the cantilevering volume.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

I love everything about this structure: from the exceptional cantilevering of the top floor, to the beautiful transparency allowing stair and traffic flow visibility, to both of the seating areas (especially the one positioned underneath the cantilever for shelter), and finally to the reflection pond stationed out front. Gorgeous work.
