Better than us. We are having a bit of snow. I'm sitting on my butt and doing nothing today. Maybe a few calls and then head out to take some pictures.

Have fun in the cold.

Yes, I do. As you can see, this one came with "Some Assembly Required".

Re: Street Of Dreams 2014


Almost all the builders we work for contract the steel suppliers to set it also. We usually have to adjust the height though. Im sure its not too big of a deal but glad we dont have to mess with it just the same

Got the garage walls up. Framed and sheeted them on the deck and boomed them into place. First Saturday I've worked in a while, but the weather's not bad, about 20f, and with my upcoming trip Thursday, I need to make up some time.

Looks pretty neat. How well does that zip tape stick in the cold?

Re: Street Of Dreams 2014


All the walls are done and I'm off to Germany. I know, no pics means it didn't happen, but I worked till dark giving some last minute instructions to the guys so they can work at least a couple of days while I'm gone.

You can cut and stack that roof in 4 days?! That's pretty impressive. Sheathing stacked roofs is a whole better than sheathing the trusses on a roof like that, trusses would have approximately 55 thousand different bumps off plane just so the truss engineer can blame someone else.
