I'm not sure, I did some few years ago, but they were supplied to me.
My local molding outfit can get them, but I haven't seen them in their warehouse. I get the poplar base corners from them sometimes, and they're $3-8 ea for common ones.

If you're good at plaster work, you can cut the profile in mud knives and make plastered round crown corners...

That's interesting, here the bullnose transitions to a square about 6" above the baseboard and below the crown. Looks kinda slick.

Good for you for trying to plan ahead. But don't fool yourself as to the cost of your time. I know we have time in the evenings and on weekends that we just won't be working for someone else, so yes, you can effectively save money this way. But don't forget life can get in the way.

Much productivity is lost in setup and tear down and clean up. In the start/stop/cleanup VS work progress ratio it's best to keep the former to a minimum.

It's easier to factor the PITA of working around someone else when pricing a contract. We all know that it takes more time when working around other people's stuff, but somehow overlook that or at least discount it in our own environs.

So it boils down to this IMO...Get it done as efficiently as you can. Finish it completely before you move into it. Living in a working space and working in a living space aren't typically very efficient ways to proceed.

Re: A&E's House


To me the hardest part, taking out exhaustion and burn out, is tool setup. Make sure you have an entire set of tools just for the house if you are going to have areas blocked off and being worked on. It is both frustrating and time consuming to pull out all your gear from the trailer, then set up the saws, then work a few hours after work or the weekend and then tear down and reload it all. Or even worse is getting to the job site and realizing you left your bag with all your screw guns at the house, or the finish guns, etc.

Small expensive things like nail guns aren't so bad to grab, but larger things like chop saws, table saws or constantly needed screw guns, bits and Sawzalls, etc., are nice to just have out and ready when you get home.

Footings need to go down to undisturbed soil - maybe that's at grade, maybe it's a few feet down.

Some AHJs would require 2X6 first floor walls to put the second floor on. Make sure you know what your local BI is going to require on existing walls and footings.

Nail the bottom cord of the old to the bottom cord of the new, and plan on having some screw heads show up due to initial movement.

Get a dedicated compressor and hose that's big enough to run a framing gun. Lugging and setting that up / rolling it back up stinks when you're already tired. Consider getting a dedicated framing gun as well.

Get dedicated extension cords as well.

When it comes to paint, spray it out in a day or two. Brush and roll is going to be all set up and clean up.

For my own framing, I've used a chainsaw before, but you don't want to do that it you're tired or haven't done a bunch. It's fast...

Re: A&E's House


I am completely on board with the dedicated house tools. I am actually going to take my electric compressor in to get fixed tomorrow so I can have it ready to go when the time comes

For the shell I am taking a week - week and a half off and going full time on the place. Then I will work in a couple other weeks as I can.

Too bad you have to do it on borrowed money....that's the part that would take the excitement out of it for me

me would rather pay for it now if at all possible instead of the rest of my life

It sucks being a HO at times. Especially if you're a contractor.

I've always said HO insurance companies should give contractors discounts. I can't tell you how many boo boo's I've fixed that I could've made a claim for.

I think they screw you because you are...cause they probably think you screwed them somewhere along the way

Insurance is such a dirty business
