All done! Put this warehouse up at a gas plant for the operators to store things during the second phase of plant construction. After that it'll be a maintenance shop. In floor heat, lunch room, bathroom. Not a bad place to work. Fun job, went smooth. I'm looking forward to not wearing FR clothing all the time for a while.

The site is covered in snow now but supposed to be mid 40s next week. Hopefully we fly main trusses tomorrow even with both my truss companies having cranes down and operators sick.

We run a vac on our ceilings, walls, and floors after our drywall finisher is done to ensure everything is ready for our painters. Plus it gives us an opportunity to inspect things before paint. Glad it's nice and warm inside...about 15 degrees today...

Yes. Track saw with a jig. And a lot of shims varying in a couple hundredths of an inch. Measure the outside and measure the inside and divide. That gives me the width. Still doesnít end up perfect and they have to be chased. I got in trouble towards the left side ending and had to re-rip about 10. Total of 124 pieces ripped in all.(midi vacuum bag fills up quick) Cut the ends after marked with a block to get my over hang and then run a belt sander over the ends to fair them out.
Nick.

FYI- many thanks to a few on hear for posting pics of festool bag with the end cut off and a dowel with clamps rolled up on the end of the vacuum bag to reuse it. Would have gone through 4 bags otherwise.
