Man that looks like a mess work of framing, even though nicely done.

This is a job Justin and I were "just work bee's on"...

He may have nightmares if he sees this.

Before and afters, with a few progress.

A quick tile job this week. I'll finish the front of the tub deck once the tub is plumbed in.

3.5" steel/concrete filled column to the sill plate. Shimmed with steel shims.

The flitch beam wall end has a 3x8 3/8 wall steel tube in the wall to the sill plate also.

Foamed around both of these.

I think there are 50 nails in the hanger supporting that beam, GC wanted to use N10's, hunger calls out 16 pennies....

The flitch beam was a good time setting the GC would not get a lift for the wall end of the flitch beam. I set up scaffolding on the open end and used a chain fall to raise the free end, Justin and I ended up cribbing up the wall end to slide it over the support. Wouldn't of had the scaffold and chain fall if I didn't own and supply it.

Have to give Justin credit for this one also. As I said we were just worker bees.

This was done during a winter that was very cold. Many days below 0. Took a lot longer than it should have.

I did the electrical on that one also.

Best days were when the GC stayed out of our way.

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


Starting on some wainscoting. It's for the kitchen I did a short while back. Keep jumping back and forth between two clients right now trying to keep them both happy.

He has Colonial casing around his doors and windows which is 11/16" thick, so I'm making the wainscoting 5/8" thick to keep it below the door trim. It's made things a bit interesting. I wanted to use 5mm MDF for the panels but neither of my 2 suppliers carries it, so I settled for 1/4". They had 3mm but that's just too thin for my blood.

Instead of routing the back side out and having to deal with round corners I just did a rabbet that's 1/4" deep and 3/8" wide. The pocket screw holes I padded up by 1/16" to move the screw hole and it just barely works. Switched over to the fine threads because the coarse were blowing out the joint sometimes, not that it matters because it's all on the backside.

Front side


Back side


Close up of the rabbet detail.


Obviously I need to install the panels. I had to get 1/2" long staples online because no one around here sells them.

Gezz that's the best looking larder I have ever seen and the first time in forty years I have heard the term larder, back in the UK no one had a pantry

Glanced at the pictures, thought you got a new jointer in a pretty crate.

We are smashing this roof.
2 days early last week doing the rear sections while we waited for the rest of the material.

Then Friday, Saturday, Monday, and today on the front section.
