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


my first day back from my holiday was sooo great
the upper roof on the end unit was framed so i got to sorta have my own "crew" of labourers and we sheeted it.
They had never sheeted, so they weren't fast. but they did a decent job.
rope is a pain in the assssss but its what we gotta do to stay safe.
this roof is interesting.
on the end units rather then a hip it sorta warps over. theres the 24p lower and theres the upper 1p roof, there is 2 different upper heights, so rather then a hip, we had rafters going perpendicular to the last pair of common rafters, and they followed the slope at the rafters and landed flat.
kinda cool.
this townhouse block reminds me more and more of my first townhouse block.
6 plex
i got to build the porch roofs.
same roof design.
lots of fun
etc

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


having the time of my life. framing with chris
learning a ton on roof framing and ****.
So we have continued to frame our new roof over the old one.
learning about soffit framing and doing hips and stuff.
And guess what!!! I was the only 1 on the crew who could figure out the radius of the window based on a rise and run, so i did that, left 20" above the window for trim and drywall. and tomorrow i will get to build it.!!
All the pieces are cut, gotta install the outer piece, then use the cut piece and attach it to the beam that is 30" away from the wall.
its gonna look odd with the barrel dying into the way but who cares.
Theres 4 eyebrows to be built. and i think if this one goes good ill get to build the others :clap
After i install the horizontal straps i think it will be sweet to see the curved fascia go on. sheet it and frame the 24p roof over that.
We gotta wait to get the concrete chainsaw to cut the dividing walls. i swear im gonna go tonight and start with my hand saw..i wanna sheet!! and the uncut walls are stopping me!!!!
also learned about doing slab prep at another site. foam and mesh.
this week well be at the slab site to get the icf walls going

Nope, that's the easy one.

-40C = -40F
0C = 32F
15C = 59F
28C = 82F
100C = 212F

Those are the one's I know without looking.

Another quick floor and base board job I did this past Saturday morning. Laminate floor and 5-1/4" tall base (upgrade of the 2-1/2" existing base). I start a frame job on Monday!

I've been dilly-dallying with a bit of remodeling lately..Very cheap Chinese cabinets but they look nice now they are in. The Chinese guys came in and did the marble counter tops. Over the Chinese have taken over the stone counter top market
