    Do you recall the color of the steel I beams? We're considering changing our "Avon Green" 1963-era beams to a different color. We have cedar eaves, aluminum clad windows, and are hoping to update our colors.


    Also, I notice that your I beams have areas where they are inside and outside. How did this design deal with the thermal issues that this can raise? Our beams run from outside of the house, through the house, and out the other side.

    The steel beams are painted with a Gunmetal Grey color in Sherwin Williams ProMar 200 Latex, Eggshell finish.


    We have not had thermal issues with the steel in the moderate Pacific Northwest climate.
