Need some Ideals. Im with the girls softball club. We are building a field
and have got most everything done.
got dozer work done. sod laid. Pads poured and blocked upt now time for
a roof. Now need Ideals on getting roof

The 2 30x12 concret dugouts are done.
now time for a roof. We are wanting to
fasten a 30' I beam on top. This way there are no poles in dugout holding up the roof.

I called the local company who is good about donateing stuff. They said they would donate 2 Ibeams. There had to be
plates concreted in on top of the blocks walls... Then the beams would be welded on top to make secure. We talked breifly
he said he would get with me on the plates to be set.. My block guy is about done and these plates need to be done.

I take it you fill the bocks up and then
put a plate with rods that attach to the
Con someone explain more about this.
Do you have a pic that I can view.

Building the field is a parent deal. We have been getting good help
and this will be done right by the right person. I just would like to know about how this is done. My blocks guy laid the blocks for about nothing. He is good but hard to talk with and understand. I asked him about adding plates for I-beam he didn't understand.
