We had it checked out for code, it will pass. I will post some more pictures as the job progresses. Everything is a very modern design in this basement. It's been a lot of fun to work on

We got a nice change order in the living room, Owner added 4 trays versus having a huge lid at 7'-10". Also added drapery pockets for windows and sliders.
Big boy's all growns up. Looking good Xavi! Saw you driving down swift today.

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

we finally poured the walls.
the walls look really nice
when the straping and braces are gone
in the garage as they were setting the beams they notcied the 4" wall was moving... underengineered. so we cannot do any q decking for the upper slab until other things are figured out
today did some waterproofing and go rained out

So we left this house sit while a fairly large problem was resolved but she'll be done tommorow, just have to throw a dormer with a 4/12 shed roof in between those gables

Can you take a couple of Pics from different angles on the triple girder?


I've never seen a truss system like that

JT, what do you mean you've never seen trusses like that? What specifically? It's all sheeted now so can't really take anymore pics. Nick what blocking? Only had 2 girder's that were not a standard progression, so i had to cut in little rafters to connect the two. One had a 12 1/4" run and the other 19 3/4".

well like the little rafters that go between stepped up trusses
like on the 3 ply girder you cut a reverse birdsmouth on the blocks,
im gonna assume you did that rather then just floating it up to plane it for better bearing and nailing..

Nick yeah that is exactly why i do it. There is less room for error and plus it makes it easier while framing it by yourself. I've always called it a crows foot. I framed that in while the guy you can see in the pic sheeted behind me. Even the 21' hip there is cut the same way.

yep
say on a 12p
and a 3 ply girder..
you would have to float it up 4 1/2" which would only give you like 2" of plumb cut on the girder.
nice
and i seen on your other pics you did the crows foot to make sure things planed in properly.
the trusses were not stepped right, and to maintain the 24" spacing you have to cut a crows foot on the filler blocks to build it up
