No tar paper? Just Ice and water at the eaves?

One more layer of protection. Not require but a better building practice. At least that's what I was taught

tarpaper or the harness?
one thing i noticed. every once in a while one of my fellow workers would place a nail on shingle that would align with the upper shingles seam. i mean, the nail was set to proper depth but just at the seam, seams were butted tight they said, so i am not too worried

That's a problem waiting to happen. Minimum, put a dollop of silicon or tar over that nail. The tar paper serves at least two purposes. One is the extra layer of protection and the other allows you to remove the shingles easier when you go to reroof. If you roof directly on the sheathing then the shingles will bind with it and it will be hell to get off.

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


Finished up the condo interior metal frame job last week. Got lots of good feedback from City during framing inspection as well as the Owner's bank inspector (who is a licensed GC).

Moving to another job this week. Working for a design-build GC, we're taking over a nightmare addition from an unlicensed contractor. Huge deviations from permit drawings, inadequate framing, missed footings and reinforcement...you get the picture. Permit drawings called for a 8" block wall to support new second floor against existing house, Mr. Unlicensed Contractor decided to short cut and frame a 2x6 bearing wall (triple top plate..oops) with no footing instead. Gonna have to build temp supports, break concrete and add continuous footing. Wall sections showed a 8x16 F&P tie beam with 2-#5 rebar cont. reinf...instead they used two courses of block and who knows if it's reinforced. Wall sheeting was installed vertically and nailed off not even close to the required nailing pattern by Florida code. I'll post pics as we move along fixing stuff.

Gonna be fun to sort this one out - up for a challenge. I'm working on new permit drawings as we speak.

I thought I posted this but I guess not as I don't see it.
I did this cheap box kitchen last week. I had help for a couple hours, which is rare.
Just wanted to show that a simple kitchen can be set in a day with crown and toe kick, base.
9 man hours total and it looked as good as a cheap kitchen can.

i went back and fixed the issue, went through the whole roof, found any buttjoints with nails and fixed it.

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


Its behind the wall in the basement now. Is it worth the time to patch and paint a hole for a $20 estwing...

After weighing out the answer, I'm going to bring a strong magnet to work tomorrow and tape it to a stud and fish it out
