I am looking at having to install a steel I beam flush in a ceiling. joist hangers on both sides. I did this once before and ended up packing both sides with ripped down 2x10. 2 on each side. so I could attach the hangers.
This beam is wider, the flange is 8", so it would take 3 boards on each side to pack it out, and then thru bolt it.
There's got to be a better way.
