Thanks..just looked yours up. That's a cool look. We were going to do wire as well but switched to 5/8" rod instead. It looks like you just cleared the metal..all welds and grinds exposed..our client was the same way..did not want it painted.

they wanted an industrial look. Your going to use 5/8" cables? That's HUGE!! We just used a clear Lacquer on the steel as soon as it was cool enough to touch.

No not cable..solid rod. We wire brushed everything with a grinder, cleaned it all with Laquer thinner, then shot it with two coats.

Here are the landings we worked on today. Had to make a hardwood sandwhich since the bottom is open. Laid the bottom layer upside down and glued and pinned it all together. Then glued and pinned the ply to that. Took the whole section off and installed the top layer. Then used our sweet new Festool to cut everything at once. The only thing we have to do yet is install the edge trim. The treads and floor are both 2" thick so the bulk works!

do just cantilever the upperfloor for the brick to siding transition.
when you do the sunkens based on number of risers is there a specific riser height you are given or you just use say 7 1/2" and inform the stair guy?
roof would be a fun one to sheet.

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


after going to pick up some nails and vents for my friends roof tomorrow i started this little project for my neighbour
He has an existing carport with posts and braces on the property dividing side.
So he got someone to come in and dig a footing and lay a course of block with anchor bolts.
I was to close this side in.
and the front too, with an opening for a garage door.
i never even thought i would see this happen but its gonna look sweet!
Blah blah, plumbed down from the beam and snapped my lines for the sills.
framed up the walls.
left openings for windows. and starting sheeting.
The dumbies at RONA shipped us 3/4" T&G OSB instead of 7/16" osb...
The block work is screwed up so i need to snap a level line and pull my sheeting up to that.
we poured a concrete footing to extend the block work farther at the front.
got to use my hilti to drill into the old piers to dowel rebar in
It was dark when i finished so i did not get pics of the garage box beam header i built.
After school i will work on installing the sheeting. and then it will be stuccoed.
Eventually we will demolish the back of the carport which has a shed and extend out the walls to have a bigger space.
we will get a clear window well to cover the window that is at eave level in the flat roof.
i am soo much better at running sill plates now
everything fit first try.
Tommorow i am off to supply LABOR to help my friend do his roof.
rip and tear and install. gonna have to move it, but well get it done.
Oh, the guy whos house i roofed last week asked me to come and do the back half of his other house (4sq gable, no vents no, chimneys)


and i also picked up a heavy duty Stanley hammer tacker for $20

From slab to this in 7 days? How many guys on your crew? I'm not doubting, just curious.

4 man crew+telehandler.
Theres a ton of bearing walls in the basement, no steel beams except for second floor. slab would easily knock a day+off.
Best we've done this model in is 5 days with a 5man crew, but there were no sunken areas.

That's awesome. Things here take so much longer because of all the hurricane tie down. I look at a house like that and I see 5 days of tie down alone, let alone framing, sheathing, and truss set.

Right, it must be nice to live in a no wind no shake zone. I'm shocked that guys build on here and don't even own a tico nailer

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


Here is a basement we did where the HO was in over there head they called us to bail them out. It sat torn apart for over 2 years before they called.

This is what it looked like when we got there.





This is finished ready for carpet.
