Got them installed today. We got to the house just in time for the skies to let go. Good thing I finish most sides. What did get wet was dried off in 15 minutes with a fan blowing on it.

Really good that they were in small pcs. Never would have gotten them up the stairs and around all the corners. Got a little worried with the 36"x 92 1/2" face frame, but didn't have any issues.

Brought 3 of my Husky folding benches and some moving blankets. Put the face frame on top of that and then each cabinet one at a time. Brought some 24" squeeze clamps to keep things put while driving the pocket screws. Pocket screwed the left and right cabinets all the way around, top, middle and bottom. The center cabinet I put glue on the left and right side biscuits and pocket screwed the top, middle and bottom. Kept the clamps on the sides for 25 minutes while we took a break.

After that I made sure the face frame would be straight. Had to add a layer of blanket on the middle Husky bench to get everything perfectly straight. Then we put the back on and screwed it together. Took the cabinet off the benches and then flipped it on its back and put the full length toe kick on.

Then all that was left was to slide them it place. Fit like a glove. Two 4" screws through the floor at either end of the drawer cabinet and 2 screws into the right stud. I took the hinge plates off, drilled a countersink hole and put 2" screws in. Put the hinge plates back on and hung the doors. Then put the drawers in and adjusted them a little to make them perfect. Total length of the cabinets is about 134".

Went smoother than I figured. Unusual.

Oh, and the little Milwaukee fan worked great.



You learned all that from my office thread dint ya?


Mike.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Same ****, different day... Going to move down to the first floor in this project by the second or third day of next week.
Contact wording issues are now muddying the scope of work to be completed. If I continue to work based on the original agreement, I can be off of this project by the end of next week... If it goes in to the expectations of the GC (upon approval of payment), then I may be able to get out of here within two weeks.
More arborite, more plain Jane trim, more door hardware...
And... Does dummy hardware really need to be that complicated? I swear... This door and hardware supplier has no foresight in to how their products get installed with the slabs and jambs that they provided.

Looks good, any reason the old roof and new one aren't tied in so there is not going to be that crazy side wall to roof valley?

Flat roofing membrane of some kind. TPO, Carlile, Duro-Last ext. Run the membrane up both sides about 2ft and then shingle and side over it.

Incompetent “architect”.

The new roof is higher than the old and he probably didn’t know how to deal with that so he left it up to the framer to figure it out n

I've actually run into Andy situation a couple times here when when building off of other people's plans, did you consider sending the designer an email asking if you could just tie the roof into the other roof? Does not look like it would be an issue to do so and would be a lot better for you

Itís pretty common but itís nice if the plans show the transition, that way when you order trusses youíll get all of them and there will be less stick framing.
