Re: Ward Road


When you are lifting that thing, you can't hardly see what you are doing.

Re: Ward Road


The worst for me is lifting a large gable wall from straight on. I prefer to be at a slight angle, kind of diagonal off the corner, helps with depth perception.
Looks great so far. That tyvek is really clean. It never fails, when its time to tyvek my walls it's always windy and we end up with a wrine or two

I am ok with lifting from an angle if I only hove one tie point. On the longer walls, we usually have two points of lift. For those, I prefer to square up to the wall. The geometry works better and things go up more evenly. I am fairly new lifting with the forklift, but we have been using a crane a lot for 30 years, and a lot of the same principles apply.

Re: Ward Road


There is not many left around here. The guy told me they would go around it 20 feet from the base of the tree, but I want some assurance that is not gonna kill that tree.

Re: Ward Road


I didn't think you could use 4x9 on a roof , and it says stamp out on the wall. I didn't do it that way.

Re: Ward Road


The plan on the main part of the house called for 12' ceiling. The HO decided he wanted it to be 16'. I am getting ready to build the wall yesterday , he showed up and said he doesn't need it that tall.

Re: Ward Road


These people are nuts any more with ceiling heights. The one I just finished had a 43x26' great room/dining/kitchen with a 14' ceiling.
