What is the story on this house? Fire or wind damage? Joists & rafters are all 2x4's?

No damage. Just a second story addition. The home is 120 years old. Exterior is double brick strapped with lath and plasterer. Entire house is being gutted and re worked. Basement has been underpinned already. We have 8'8 ceiling now down there. 9' main floor and 9' second floor.
So I am adding a layer of block to the main floor before we go up. Big Money on this one. Lol. The house was recently purchased for $738,000. And we have a $400,000 budget for the addition.

I'm excited to get this one going. *thumbs-up*

Little remediation system I am working on. 4 wells. Each well will have an SVE, Soil Vapor Extraction line, 2 inch secondary containment, with a 1/2 inch line inside, and a half inch air line to run the skimmer pump in the well. All the lines are run to a 24x24 building. The building will house a blower for the sve, and air compressor for the air pumps. Out side will be a double containment tank where the product will be collected.

First set, well drillers, and piping.

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


Finished another motorized shading project at the Greene in Beavercreek, Ohio. The Greene is an outdoor shopping plaza near Dayton, Ohio and is relatively upscale compared to most of the area's shopping destinations.

Scaffolding or an articulated lift wouldn't work on this project so we ended up having to use ladders and planks. The stairways and sharp bends in the hallways made getting the ladders to the location one of the most stressful parts of the job.

Customers were great and extremely patient. The factory took two weeks longer than normal for production.

Those prices are unbelievable! That's a $130,000 house all day long in my area.

Looks like a complex job though. Good luck!

Because that's what they want

In the same room as the bar. It is the door to the area that is under the stairs that lead upstairs to the main part of the house.

I copied as best I could the 6 panel doors that have in the room. Since the door height is only about 65" (28"w) I decided to only use 4 panels and line them up with the rest of the doors that are in the area.

Made from Poplar and 1 3/8" thick it will have the same hardware on it as the other doors. The decided that it should be an inswing door so the handle doesn't stick out into the hallway. Bad move as far as I am concerned. The storage area under the stairs is small and with the door swinging in it will really limit the potential. Main reason for the area is to access the back of the electronics for the theater. So if that is all they are using it for then is should be OK.

This is the only pic I have right now. After it was taken out of the clamps and with putty on all the joints and various spots such as pinhole knots.

It is currently in the spray room with primer on it along with the jamb/trim. It will have two 3 1/2" hinges on it.



The unit is complete. Just need to pound a few holes in it for the handle and mount it to the wall.



Finished up this project yesterday, went in without a hitch. HO has a problem though. The didn't think far enough ahead with the tile. They didn't put tile in the area of the door opening. They decided to have an in-swing door to keep the door handle out of the hallway so it wouldn't be a snag hazard, good idea - with consequences. The HO did the tiling and has left over pcs, so they will just add to the area under the door.

Here is the inside of the closet, unfinished.


Door view from the bar area


Door view straight on


I always always have my router with me in my FatMax case. It always has a straight bit in it. I forgot it. Had to do the mortise cutouts for the strike and striker plate old school with a chisel. Wouldn't have been so bad but the plates had rounded corners for a router, made it a pain.

I put the base moldings on today.

Solar Control Do you install mechoshades? we seem to always install these for the drapery vendors. Most projects have motorized shades around the perimeter of the entire floor.

We do install them. They are still probably the most specified shade in division twelve, though we frequently bid Lutron and Springs shades.

I'm surprised the drapery vendors aren't installing the shades; are they using your firm as a subcontractor? We've always done it ourselves. We, with assistance from the GC, coordinate the work with the framers if we're using pockets and the EC when the shades are motorized.
