Is the exposed foundation painted or is there a coating on it?

THAT is my house. New roof, and Francis Ford Cupola (to properly vent roof, and aesthetics). Beginning to tear off vinyl and restore original clapboard and exterior trim details.

90% of interior has been gutted and remodeled. I am beginning to resemble Howard Hughes (the later years).

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


Just a garage/loft apartment for a client that we did a full gut of their main house. I used a quad 24" LVL ridge to effectively span all of 32' (ish). Only the dormer (24') is actual clear span. Added extra TJI's to carry some additional load on bath/left side. No columns in garage bays. Asymmetrical 6 to 13/4 gable. 2x6 walls, solid blocking every 32".

Steep hill behind it with road on top. Built to "lean" back into hill and face creek and garden, flank main historic log/ clapboard main house.

Oriented south. Placed the headers for the dormer windows on the day of the winter solstice......perfect overhang.

I figure it may last 5 years or so......hopefully.

But then again, I did drop out of the NYIT Architecture Program when I was 17.

Be cool, stay in school.

I like it! We used a quad 24 once...damn that's big! It's fun to have to drill and install all the bolts for that big of a beam.

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


i did some work back in the garage that i roofed and built the stairs in,
i went along the joist bays and installed 2x6 blocking. 48 feet in total.
then i framed walls.
i blocked and put poly behind the intersection to exterior walls.
he was unsure of the height of the doors so i left out the header.
i framed a wall beneath the top of the stairs and applied the ledger to the bottom, i moved them over for him from the wall. i kinda missed it at first, nbd we both did.. unscrew and rescrew, chalk it up as a lesson.
now im just waiting for my next job!
blackberry cameras suck ass

Here's a few more from the big wall lifts.

Going up!



Up and in place (messy site... oooops)



Almost finished building.



Site is a mess in these pics. A few days of going [email protected]$ to the wall. Just a few interior things left to do on this. Starting a single family building down the road from this. On a street that has 38 lots to be framed. On contractor has them all... guess who is most likely framing them all....

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


Here's the best part of my last job. (OK second best, the best part will be getting paid)

See those tire tracks leaving the building, that's all that remains, well that and about 150lbs of rusty scrap, of a Frieghtshaker/Altec utility co. truck with a bed so rusty all the power co's tools were getting soaked every time it rained.

Truth be told the right way to fix it would be to pull the bed and crane/auger combo then blast everything before putting it under the hot knife. Problem with that is you could buy a new truck for not much more. So, instead I got to cut-n-patch rust for about 3 weeks.

That's all the pic's you'll get, too, since I didn't take any during the 3 frikkin weeks of rust repair. Rust. Ugh.

Don't get me wrong I am grateful for the work, but I'm also traumatized by the 3 frikkin weeks of rust repair.

I used a torsion spring set up like for a garage door for the lifting. Because it already had the electronics for stop points and reversing motor, I used a garage door opener to motorize it.

I shortened the chain and welded a bike sprocket (that fit the chain) to a collar and mounted on the component shaft. I rearranged how the components (bearing brackets, cable drums, torsion spring/bracket, and sprocket) are positioned on the shaft to fit my space resrictions.

The weight of the stairs gets heavier as they go up, so I used the cone shaped cable drums that are made for doors that go straight up without folding over.
