Post A Picture Of Your Current Job.


Since probably every contractor has a digital camera, I think it would be interesting if we pick Friday, for instance, and everyone (even the plumbers) take a picture of what you are doing, or project, and post them on Saturday or Sunday. My camera is in my truck with 2 months worth of pictures on it....and I need to download and sort anyway.

So how about it? Let's all post a picture by this weekend of a project.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job.


Tomorrow I have to move these 2 vanity light wires to where they need to go now that the homeowners have chosen their mirrors and they're finally on sight. That's marble and the GC has assured me that his tile guy will be there to make the cutout for the gem boxes. After that I will wire and install both of the lights.



After that I have to wire and mount a chandelier to a light-lift.

I am a day early, but hurricane Ike may have us wet tomorrow. This is a steel project, a 40x80 with a 30x50 canopy projection and we were hurrying to get the roof down. This is the building that has the bomb shelter under it, when denick was here in May, he saw the hole in the ground.

Well, here is the before - we are in the process of turning it into a double headed shower. Even after breaking that cast iron jetted tub into 2 pieces it took 3 of us to struggle it out of the place.

Deck rebuild - she wanted access to backyard during the build (for the dogs), so I built the deck in two phases.
This shows West end (16'x16') framed, decked and temp handrailed and East end (10' x 29') framed and loaded w/ decking.

Mac,
It looks like that's only 6 or 8 feet high
at the most.
Are you sure that's your job?

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job.


Heres what I was doing. Pouring some piers for a garage I'm doing. I ended up mixing it all in that mixer, all 4 yards of it! I believe it was about 167 80lb bags. I had to much anziety about setting all the anchor bolts dead on for the trusses I figured this way I could work at my own pace.

Floor truss in a garage?

Hey neo, The building is a miracle truss steel building, the trusses are a four piece design they sit on the concrete slab and are bolted down. The 6" slab sits on the piers. Heres their site.
