Beams build to last

In Toledo, Spain, I had the opportunity to visit a nice restaurant, El Palacete.  http://www.restauranteelpalacete.com/ The food and surroundings were good, I can well recommend it.

The building had been made already some 900 years ago and interestingly, the current owners claim that e.g. the wooden beam that holds up the roof/ceiling structure, is the original one. Not bad work.

Sometimes structures work for a long time! I wish some of the 7000 buildings now done with Peikko´s Deltabeam still exist year 3000, and somebody is looking at them and wonders how they are still working after 900 years...
