You may have already realized this, but your going to have a headroom problem as you go down the stairs. Maybe I misunderstood where you are placing the stair.

Ya I'm not exactly sure how it will turn out. There will be a closet in the bedroom above the stairs so I figured to do some field engineering when I get to that step. I was hoping to frame the floor this weekend but I better work on my customers houses instead.

What did you do use floor trusses to span that?

16" TJIs. It feels stout. I cut the stairs last night.

Re: Siding "shouse"


I'm terrible about taking progress pics, I think this was Friday night. Got the rest of the walls up Saturday and got trusses and most of the sheeting done today. I've been lucky with the weather, usually don't get to wear a t shirt working in November!

Looks like it is coming along nicely. The weather has been great, looks to be so for a while yet. Would be nice to get it dried in before weather turns.

I ordered the metal for the roof today, it's supposed to start snowing Thursday. I'll take a pic when I head up there this afternoon, it's looking like a house finally

Don't know how much metal you do, but one thing I like to do is at the gutter edge is to screw on both sides of the rib right into the 2x fascia board. Also if only using 1/2 sheeting I would recommend the 5/16 head screws for the roof. Much less chance of spin outs. Hope you can get it on before weather gets bad. Suppose to get nice for a little again.

Re: Siding "shouse"


Agree on the 5/16 screws, just did a reroof that was hail damaged and they used 1/4" screws, probably 10/20% off the screws were loose or backed out. I also predrill the sheets, helps give that screw a little wiggle room to prevent them from backing out and it keeps it simple for the help, ha ha.

I like the idea of double screwing down at the eaves, I've only done that with standing seam with those screws being the only visible ones but I think I'll start doing that on everything.

Good deal. Hasn't the weather really been great lately.

Been doing a bathroom addition on my house, just got it all dried in this evening. Now can slack off a little.

How far off the interstate are you? I will have to stop by on my way to Sheridan sometime.

It's about two miles, you can see the hill behind the shouse from the interstate but you can't see the house.

Got it dried in yet? Was pretty nice over the weekend. Was in Helena , but busy watching my grand daughter. Sounds like this week is not going to be nice doing outside work.

I got some windows up, the ones I could reach off of the ground. I had to get an alternator for my gradall, so once I get that in I'll be able to reach the rest of the windows, probably be this weekend.
