The drywall shims are such a great idea. None of the big box stores or lumber yards near me had em, so I️ ordered some online.

I carry a roll of rosin paper in the van and tape it together to form the template for off layouts like what you have.

Built which/what?
I thought you were templating your own work...for yourself.
OK, bad joke.

RP, how do you find time to work on anyone elses stuff? HVAC is one of the trades people are going cartwheels to try and find people in. 6 day work weeks are still on going strong and I talked to a friend and he said they're still looking for people...so that makes for the last 20 years that I know of in CO. Just looked and one HVAC company has 12 slots listed looking for people.

Crazy the amount of work out there...in some trades anyway.

The work you're doing now may be for your friends and family, but in the future, they'll be moving out and someone else will be buying the home that your work will be in.

Too much work for my lazy *rse. I'd just rough it on a piece of paper, measure the points and use a bevel square to get the corners with labels, then go have lunch somewhere.

As he's asking what kind of sheetstock goes in place of it, I'm assuming this will be another shower. This would be a shower I'd like to do as I'm an old school type guy though.

Can't wait for the pix of the framing underneath.

For fvck's sake, he has already said twice in this thread that it his OWN HOUSE. He also stated that he DOESN'T HAVE THE MONEY, BUT HE HAS THE TIME. Maybe he's doing it on the weekends to relieve stress from dealing with A$$holes all week. Maybe he's doing it to learn something new. Maybe he's being held at gunpoint and forced to do it. The big question is WHY DO YOU CARE?

I clearly wasn't quoting you. By all means poke the board with a screwdriver.

I fabricate all the solid surface tops I use, so I've made a few templates in my life.

You in CO., if so where?

Seems like he struggles a bit in the work he does in all of his relatives and friends houses and though they aren't his job, they are going into someones houses and/or someone will buy them.
