Also had some locker room fixtures. There is another install in a few weeks to put up more items. The company we install for does the design and engineering work. it's a nice little break from residential.

Lol..no still in LA. We travel for this company. They specialize in impact graphics for universities. They have full time installers but call us when they have a difficult install or if they are slammed. It's a nice gig!

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


i built this set of winders today in that garage i roofed.
reallly happy with how they went together.
i built my landing 3 1/2" larger to allow for the upper staircase bearing.
tapcons suck..or atleast this batch did.
so i just used my hilti and drilled a 1/4" hole with a bunch of nails
Cut the stringers, fit like a glove!!.
i assembled the whole unit and lifted it up...lets just say i won't do that again!. Heavy, i dropped it, and it sucked.
there is a tiny gap at the bottom on 1 stringer, i just cut the wrong side of the line.
He was impressed and i was too
A 3 stair winder would not have worked, because of the window. but im thrileld with this.!

Good and bad Nick. Where the stringers are setting, you need to hanger those. The stairs will eventually crack and fail right where your birdsmouth is. They look sweet though Nick, proud of ya. Doing well.

Not sure if you can see it in the marked up photo here Nick. Your stringer will have a great chance of cracking right where the circled part is, causing the whole set of stairs to come down. The fix is snub off the bottom points and ledger it, or hanger it.

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


Not picking on you Nick, but there is some tweaking to do. You have to understand, once you build them, you are the one responsible for something happening if it's not up to code. A fire or someone falling....bad mojo mon.

Here the top and bottom would have to have metal on it to pass code. If a wall will go under that outside stringer, that will stiffen it up and the world will be good

I understand your thinking Nick, but it's not good enough. There has to be a fail safe for the bearing. If that sucker cracks where I show it, she's coming down sooner or later. It's a simple fix. A 2x6 with the angle ripped and RS screwed underneath.

However, if there's a wall under like you said, the outside will be fine and the inside should be too. RS screws are your friend there, but not absolutely necessary.

Nice radio.

How does that top attach? That I hate to say looks suspect too. Man I feel like I'm picking on you today. They look good, but that doesn't count if it's not completely right. Sorry mon.

can i get a 90 degree bracket and put them on the inside corners?
im not seeing this angled thing, as in cut it to fit under the point on the vertical area of bearing so its like an additional ledger?

If there's a wall going under, you will be fine without it.
