Joys Of Remodeling...


1" off in 6', 1-3/8" over the height of the wall.

Had to move the strike side of the wall also to eliminate the cross leg created by fixing the corner.

That's a good case for some precision sledge work...

Tried that, ended up cutting nails from the plates and blocking.

Worse part, had to purchase another recip saw, the one I had is 1000 miles from the job.

I have a recip saw collection as well. If I have to pass a store to go get mine, I'll just buy another. The weirdest one is something like a Master Mechanic corded, because that's the only one the hardware store had. That was probably for modifying framing for a door or window...

Just worked on a high end house less than 1 year old and not one wall I had to deal with was plumb. It seems to be the norm, clients think they have a really nice home until I show up and start my rant.

I love remodel, but it is certainly not for everyone.

Sometimes, I just wish for a nice, clean, square new buildout. I'll settle for an addition, though.

Re: Joys Of Remodeling...


As far as hands on work I prefer new construction... but dont mind remodel work. Margin wise big remodels and/or additions are my best money makers, so my favorite projects

New builds are easier to manage and control, a little less margin though.

At least you know probably every house there is going to be the same.

The reason I put this in the tiling section, not the remodeling section of the forum.

Had to put a kitchen into a house that was just built. 10' wall out of plumb 1", leaning back so all of the shims had to go at the top of the uppers. Made for fun ladder work.

Must be really see through glass.

Is the tile from HD? I did one of those...randomizing the repetitive pattern drove me nuts.
