Finished up the addition and exterior work on my grandfather's home. This little garage is where my kin began; tore it down. We added living space and large garage.

All freezeboards and window wraps are PVC (Kleer) products. The back, left and right elevations are vinyl with the front all Hardy siding products.

The 18' garage door gave us trouble though with the large eyebrow. It was too bouncy and the eyebrow caused some inward sag. We ended up putting 1/4"x6" steel over the sub fascia as well as buried 1/4" steel angle directly under eyebrow soffit to wall transition. These additions took out a lot of bounce and all the sag.

Demo'd the original trex deck (20 years old they claimed), and marked out the footings for a new 500 sq.ft. Trex deck. The whole width of the house. Footings go in tomorrow, start framing it Thursday.

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


Moving a drain we installed on my big commercial job when i got back from Florida....apparently the pipe (or what was left of it anyway), in the basement wall was a few pcs of original clay pipe!

This is also the job i got called back to that the client was kind of a dick to me. He is almost ready for me to start the save-a-lot building he bought too.

I guess it really does pay to keep your head down and your mouth shut sometimes.....even when you really don't want to.

I will take a picture of the label. It's pretty nice stuff, suppose to be water proof and some sort of eco friendly BS as well.

I've had a few guys I sub for that started out horrible and ended up being great accounts and friendly with. Also own or two that I lost. I was young and let my ego get in the way. Much easier to just do the job the way they want and get the check.

Drywall finishing... Extra prep work put us back two full man days. Lots of extra filling, taping, and patching. Total board sq ft for the job is around 9400. Should be finished the walls by tomorrow evening /Thursday late morning.
Then we'll prep for ceiling texture, prime, texture ; then move back to the walls for a final touch up, prime, then trim out, spray, roll, cut, and run.
I'm leaving this job as soon as the trim is in place to go work on a reno.

Hey man, yep that is the one. It's my family's home. Gramps was a builder himself, built many of the homes as a young man on the west side of GR. But, as you can see, he didn't do much with his own home in terms of asethics! His son, my uncle, is redoing it completely (but to live there). The interior is top notch with his own handiwork on trim and custom cabinetry. I personally did all the framing and exterior carpentry and siding work.
