Soffit, fascia, roof, paint and deck. Just a PT deck, but it was fun to build, especially considering the upper part was built last year. Nothing like building backwards and upsidedown.

Finally done...

Demo'd the buildings on the property to make way for the new town homes.
The operator was good. The picked the gutters off the house with the machine, Broke a hole in the house and grabbed the appliances and pulled them out. He was pulling 1/2" copper lines with that machine.
They pulled in at 11 on Monday and had the house and building down by 10am today.
The rest if the week is all clean up and back fill.

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


Replaced the last remaining original windows in this unit of an apartment complex turned condo.
The complex was built in the mid-70s and the original windows were ALL aluminum... Frames, Sashes, Etc. This was just at the start of the first energy crunch so little thought was given to energy efficiency.

I ordered custom size vinyl windows to fit the original openings.

Here is the unit next door with the original windows...



The new windows in the unit I am working on. I cut back the aluminum siding 1.5 inches all around with a multi-tool to access the nail flange.



I installed aluminum "J" channel around the edge of the cut back siding to help prevent water from getting behind the trim.



I fabricated frames from 1X4 Wolf Board PVC on site to trim the windows. The corners were mitered and solvent welded and fastened with SS trim screws for good measure.



One of the finished trim frames.



The completed exterior... Too bad the siding is a bit wonky under the left window, it starts running off in the area of the vent hoods.



The interior will get trimmed out after I install the laminate flooring and trim out the rooms. Just waiting on the homeowner to paint.

This is one of my "Eldin" handyman jobs the homeowner saw how nice it looked and said now she wants to have me replace all the windows and trim them the same.

This place I'm working on now is the poster child for the term "can of worms." someone decided it was a good idea to build a second story on top of an existing double car port.... 4x4 columns 10' apart in both directions on 5"x5"x?" pier footings. 3- 4x8 beams sit on those with 2x6 SPF 16" o.c. The mid spans are all sagging about an inch. Second floor bearing walls don't even sit on beams. I Dropped the garage ceiling to find that the bottom plates sit in the middle of the floor joists. Brilliant! I jacked up a section of it today to shim up an area that had settled 3/4"... The 4x4 columns came up with the beams and were dangling. No hold down at all. I can't wait to see what I find tomorrow....

Fortunately it's a change order. The details on the plans were vague when I bid it, so when we found it to be insufficient it's went to straight T&M until it was fixed. So as much as it sounds like complaining, I'm thankful for the additional work.

Your projects look fun. Nice and clean as well!

Here's some pics of the haggard stuff we found on the second story sheathing...

Thanks Jesse, man there was no serious water penetration at that point! I bet you could have poked through with your finger.

For as "Green" as Canada is, I didn't notice any errosion barrier.

Or, can I just not see it?
