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


so yesterday i got all the walls up within 2 hours
then build the gables and stood trusses,
slight miscalculation on my part, i built the trusses for 11'-6"
with my adjustments for the bow and the sheathing it brought the total width to 11'-8".....skil saw and 15 minutes no problem.
man trusses suck.
i could have hand cut it muuch faster.
they just require so much bracing and ****.
ahhh
sheeted the front..
today i sheeted and shingled the back.
i finished early in the morning, because i cannot proceed further until i get skylights, hes putting 2 in the front and solar panels
gonna pick up the door, skylights and 1x pine trim and by saturday afternoon ill be done

wtf
can a mod move this to post a picture of my current job..

Same stairs from the other day. Post from the 2 part winder goes down to the basement... and through one of the stringers... This is something that had us scratching our heads the first time we framed this style of town house.

Here is what's going on:


Here is the solution for support and tying it all together:


And just because, the underside of the 2 part winder:

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


today was blah
didnt start till 12
cut the opening for the skylights,
and built the curbs
went to shingle around them and they did not include the self adhesive tape with the flashing kit
cost some time.
i said **** shingling because my compressor was being a bitch.
installed the door instead.
for the skylights i wrapped the tape up the curb and down the deck, and with step flashing ill be good ya?
they say make the curb one size and i do and the skylight fits loosely..im not sure if thats for drywall on the inside or what..

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


so my compressor continued to be a bitch so it was hand banging today.
i don't know what it is. i use up all the pressure, it goes to kick up, like rumbles a bit then just buzzes. im like wtf.
i need to buy some heavy cords for it. my 18gauge just aint cutting it. have not got around to buying some..
anyway.
skylights are meh
on this roof, almost every shingle had to be cut, so as you can imagine it was a time consuming process. what didn't help was it being my first time and trying to follow retarded instructions that contained pictures and or
meh, i followed the instructions so these ****ers better not leak.
hes really happy with it and so am i.
im gonna frame the soffits and returns soon and we will go get the 1x pine trim some time next week after work.
will look really slick with boxed in soffits and returns and a nice door casing.
swept it all out today and it looks really good inside

Ya, 18ga is pathetic. You need a 12 or 10ga depending on distance you are running. One rule is keep the compressor near the outlet and run longer air hoses.

Yes That sound is your compressor gaging for power and the slow burn going on. Airhose is a lot cheaper than power cord. Leo's way is always the way I do it.

Thats funny Stuff. Nick I agree with everyone else go buy yourself a 100' air hose probably cheaper than a chord honestly. ??? We feed with a 3/8" then split and run 1/4" on everything else. I am only 28 seemed like I bought a new tool, after or during every job when I was your age and maybe I still am but for diffrent reasons now. Keep after it buddy....Your doing good. Not sure if I understood you correctly on your process of flashing, but we always flashed the curb framing into the roof with Ice and water and Peel and Seal and then shingle and step flash it then I always Wrapped the peel and seal over the inside edge of the 2x's over the top of the 2x's and down over the top of the step flashing as in a manner of counter flashing. Honestly we have yet to ever have one leak. My last point I like the curb mounted lights much better than the deck mounted ones they seem like they would be much easier to swap if there was ever a issue, as well as they just feel like they are easier to install.

we got the peel and stick tape, wrapped it up the top of the curb and onto the deck,
and then i shingled the step flashing in

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


Buddies cabin that we shingled yesterday. No pics of up on the roof, didn't think about it until I grabbed my phone from the truck this morning. This is about 1.5 hours outside of the city, then down a 10 km dirt road. Secluded. It was awesome. I saw a bunch of rabbits, frogs, squirrels/chip munks, and a moose even ran out in front of the truck on the dirt road leaving this morning. He was about 50 meters in front of us, but I was going slow enough that I was able to stop before the collision.

This is one of the projects at the new job. A new build that is down to punch out and landscaping mostly.

I offer it not as an example of any of my work but just for the hell of it. The gent in the pic is their longest serving installer/finish carp and a great guy. The stairs in the second pic are his work.

That siding is ipe, my first encounter with it. Has anyone seen or used it as siding before? That is some dense shyte, spent a day predrilling boards on the press.

Nice looking wood floors and stairs. The ipe isn't called Iron Wood for nothing.
