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


Weirdest house I think I've ever done. Ended up being a real Cool guy who claims to be an architect and has been building this chit box for two years. Not my cup of tea but was quick money. Couple other companies wanted no part of this place. We banged it out quick and I made him aware of all the issues when I first met him.

The front entrance is so inviting with the full concrete wall. Have never seen a roof like this either. He wrapped what looks like a 2x4 in lead coated copper and then slapped black paint on it. Fascia work over main entrance was already bent to chit and full of dents but he didn't seem to care.

Flat roof had no drip or any over hang into the gutter. He's aware that the water will be leaking behind the gutter. It's his own house. Said he had offers of 1.8 mil for this place if he wanted to sell. In a very eclectic area over looking the Hudson River.

Looks like 1 part Frank Lloyd Wright, 1 part Le Corbusier, 3 parts douche-bag, and 5 parts brutal ignorance, placed in a blender, and set on high.

The closed stringers look good including your work. Very clean. However those become a debris trap. Just need to keep them cleared out.

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


Found a leak at my kids school last week and plumber tracked it down to a water line. Nothing was happening with it so I said WTF and jumped on it today. Had to tear out 2 sink cabinets that were probably 35+ years old. Damn leak has been going on for a long time. Has anyone ever seen a water leak eat away at a concrete slab. There is a recess in the slab below this wall plate. The plate has rotted and has also sunk down into the recess. If that is the case, the leak must have been happening for awhile. Mold remediation comes Monday. School starts the 5th

Only other thing I can think is that the wall was up before the pour but it doesn’t seem like it.

Just try harder to do the same thing everyone with a router sled, some crumbly wood slabs, some foam, silicone and 5 gallons of epoxy are doing, next time.

How dare you make something that isn't a fad.

Splits will cover them. Compared to most I've seen he did a great job.

I use 1" (for 1/2" supply lines) and 2-1/4" (for 1-1/2" drain lines).

They all came in from the bottom? That's no challenge

Love it when they come from the wall and floor and the plumber decided to make them all to long.

Steps I built Friday morning. So I could show punch guy how to do them.
So we could pass fkn inspection. 3/8" code on equal rise, etc.

Easy peasy right ?

The guy paid attention like a stuffed parrot.

smh.

Anyway, these passed.
