Are you using a drip cap or just caulk?

There's drip cap with end dams installed prior to the siding installation.
It gets cut tight and notched to fit over the end dams.
I'm heading out to that site soon... Just need to finish hanging a door. I'll take a picture.

That said I never use flat stock for the sill. I'd use sill stock...
Builders choice....
Standard around here is vinyl windows with Smart Trim casing.
I haven't installed a sill on the exterior... Ever.
I'd like to start recommending some other room options though.

Here's a pic of the first couple windows. Didn't make a ton of progress today.
The notches get caulked after all the siding is installed.

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


Working on a small pantry for the client of my kitchen before last. Had the small complication of the door trim being in the way for a wall to wall cabinet. So I built the cabinet and left the face frame off.

So we marked the wall where the FF and scribed it in. Then we put the cabinet, which is 1 1/4" smaller than the OD of the FF so it fit between the door trim and wall. Used a pair of 3rd hands to hold the cabinets up.

So we installed the alignment biscuits and mounted the FF on the cabinet temporarily. this put the box where it needed to be and we screwed it to the wall. Removed the FF, applied glue and reinstalled and used some creative techniques to clamp it tight.



Then we did the same for the lower





Put up the rest of the 3 cabinets, 2 uppers an 1 lower. The lower was a great thing at the end of the day. Just put it in and it was snug between the wall and door trim, level and plumb. Just screw it to the wall.





Thanks Sno!

Approximately 700' of 2'x6" slab at various lengths. What a freaking mess this slab is.
The building has about 14, 56' footings every 10' going perpendicular to length of the building.

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


I have no idea what they are going to be used for. She gave me the design and I made it. I suspect it's going to be for individual canned items or something. The partitions are removable to make more or less space per area. I set it up so they can take them out completely included the slotted guides so she can have a single open space or put a drawer in there.

Something that's harder to see is the upper cabinet straight in front of the doorway has 2 removable hanging bars so she can hang her decorative table linens in there.

I will be working there for the next 2 years or so on various projects so eventually she'll fill the pantry up and I'll see what she planned for the partitions.

No job site today but at shop prepping... this is why I love the Fein. Besides the obvious of it being a work horse. Auto Clean is excellent and will smoke a festi ac any day of the week.( Don't get me wrong I enjoy festi very much). I Know I had one and traded up. Its impressive how compact it is. And compact easy in/out/lean is a life style for me.
You can stack tstak and sys boxes.... Perfect GRABNGO
