Screwed around too long at the shop. Just painted the shop and field office in the back, will do rock and board and batten when we figure out how to turn the front room of the shop into a selections room.

Got the storage tank for the well etc... in the new well room, now have to move well equipment then tear down that yellow shed. Tesring down the metal shed, doubling size and rebuilding with board and batten siding, its to keep paint and chemicals in.

Going to pour sidewalks, irrigate a small section and plant grass and make a small parking area. Later will pour the whole front in concrete

Located spot for outdoor kitchen and started priming steel

It will be basically just like this but painted. Pit with pipe going through the roof on the end where the hood is, outdoor kitchen where the front passenger door is, sink to the right of that. Otherside the Blackstone griddle and wood storage

The wine barrels with granite tops will be relocated to this structure

Put the bags on and worked with the boys today

I pulled and replaced 22 sheets, cleared the plugged up cellulose from the eaves and put the baffles where they were supposed to be. Some jack wagon put half of them in and blew insulation over the rest of them

Just finished up that 7" polystyrene crown I was not looking forward to.

Installed 2 layers of 2x4, ripped to the spring angle...cut it on a 12" compound saw on the flat as the motor got in the way on some of the cuts. Used construction adhesive at the miters. Taped top and bottom, filled the nail holes, painted and caulked.

It's not perfect but the customer thinks it is.

Just hung the door on this yesterday.
Good customer (double leg amputee) moved into a home that is handicapped accessible.
He doesn't have a screened in porch so wanted his garage screened in so he can sit out without the bugs bugging him.. It won't fit his handicapped van.
Framed out with pressure treated, screened it and built the door from 8/4 cedar I had...painted and hung. He's happy.

Disclaimer: My legal team contacted his legal team and after deliberations, decided "who gives a hoot" (their words, not mine) if anyone who wants to see this screened in garage in a little nondescript house in a nondescript town...so be it.

Came out really nice Robie. Size of the crown is appropriate for the height of the ceilings.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


We had a project visitor last week.

One of the Eagles, paid us a visit and perched on our first aid shack about a year and a half ago, just as we were starting excavation.
(He was absolutely huge)

A return visit Friday and send off (and pretty cool that he posed on that part of the building) since we are almost done.

I think it's a valid concern to rely on tape, but the Zip tape is pretty damn tenacious once it's rolled. Their stretch tape is pretty good too.
I think it was one of the Fine Homebuilding guys who taped up some scraps of Zip when it first came out and left it out in the weather. I think it was still holding up after a few years of full exposure.

You could always do the zip system and then house wrap over it. Belt and suspenders.

The tape must be rolled...and it better not have any dirt on the adhesives. We've built close to 12k sqft of zip buildings and presently on another 3k.

The stretch tape is a nice product.
