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


I'm no framer, but a friend of mine asked for help. I'm a professional remodeler and have framed tons of remodels commercial and residential. Also have framed out buildings and add ons. This is how far the two of us have gotten. He's 62, I'm 48. Not bad I don't think.

Edit: of course the pic didnt load

You make the doors? I'm curious about the glass doors by the range. Looks like the mullions and door frame is all flush. Is that just a routed out sheet of MDF or are they made out of solid wood?

I though I had a YT video up on how to accomplish this, wasn't there. I'll look on my phone to see if I can find it.

I highly recommend getting fine and corse run chasers/de-nibbing files, and a razor run trimmer.

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


I just pulled off of one of the worst renos I've done this year (but it's only March, so hey... Fingers crossed ), and now I'm back at the full gut job.
Interior framing is nearly complete but I've been placed on to siding.
Got the last of the exterior trim and flashing done today and got a decent start on the Hardie.
Trying something different on this one, and I hope it becomes a standard for us...
Typically, the standard operation is to just cut the Hardie to fit as tight to the bottom of the window as possible. It always looks like crap, so I had another box of J trim brought out... Now the J is under the window and all other trim details so that the siding can slip under it.

How do you mean? How do we terminate the siding at the top of the window?

I've never seen that. Usually the goal is to eliminate unnecessary trim. A small rabbet or even a bead of caulking would look nicer imo.

That said I never use flat stock for the sill. I'd use sill stock...
