Thatís a heck of a house.

The windows on the front look weird to me. Like the proportions are off or the style is too horizontal.

I would Eliminate the little bump out on the end of the garage, it doesn’t really add anything to the looks and makes the roof more complicated. You could get a few more square feet in the garage while simplifying the build at the same time.

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


if it was my client I would definitely advise on cleaning up and simplifying the design

but it's not up to me on this one, just might be hired to build per plan

I can help with that. Once you start, you'll realize whatever your final number was - you forgot to use the 2X multiplier.

Conventional wood or trex type decks not allowed in this project.


Attached is what types of "outdoor extended living spaces" are allowed.

None are mine. Just snapped while reviewing with my people.

Save yourself some time Ryan. Looks like somewhere between tree-fiddy and tree-fiddy-five to me.

Been years since I framed a porch, even longer since I used wood for framing.

I just want to make windows, trim and the new roof over the bay.

Hoping to get the go ahead on putting a new lid on this building. Should get the word Friday, i got the 99% feeling on this one. Hopefully my TPO over steel will follow this job directly.

Fingers crossed.

The blue circled area will be demolished.

I can still do it. Takes me a while though

My 2 bosses had been working together for somewhere around 35 years. We flowed like nothing else I've ever been a part of.

4 of us were there every day and we usually had a helper or 2 who rotated through for 2 years. I really miss those days.

I wrapped up a weird color combo


Fiberon IPE, Rosewood trim, Timbertech Radiance rail, Kona rails, Brownstone posts.


I would have like it more if they substituted the Roese wood with Kona

Yup, Kona is a color.

I feel like you should have your own thread selling a decking system.

Do you pre-cut anything before you get to the site?

Nah. Just a big lift of 2x8x16 and deck boards.
The lower deck is all flush beams so it took longer than usual today.
