To be fair, it's only going to leak when it rains

Maybe it's on the side of the building that doesn't get rain...

For shingles on a cone you snap vertical lines every 6" around the bottom meeting the center point up top

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Got called in today to give a bid for finishing a flooring install that someone else abandoned. Hahaha.. Check this out. The Wall of SHAME!-20161207_092245.jpg


Two entire bedrooms all done, in the exact same H pattern. No staggering.

Just got the go ahead to rip it out, redo, and finish the main floor.

Easy work, but we will take almost anything that keeps us inside for a couple of days this time of year.

Materials are all stacked up waiting in the living room. Just show up and go.

Some's bastards, some's ain't, and that's the score

Not sure if it was intentional, but I have seen floors installed like that on purpose. I think it's looks unique.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Well, some engineered lumber is sold in the same lengths so it makes it hard not to have a repeating pattern.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


If it is going to be a uniform stagger i prefer it be done in thirds instead of every other. Same with decks or siding.

You should not be able to pick out a pattern like that.

Cuts man, cuts. You take the cut off from one row and start the next.... Or am I missing something?

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


You're missing something. If they are all the same length you are going to get a pattern. You may get a staggered pattern, but it's going to be repetitive.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


You may get a pattern, but it shouldn't be that uniform. Onmywayup has it right, you start the next row with the cut off from the last. I find it very hard to believe that the room is exactly the right size to get a pattern that perfect without specifically trying to get the pattern that perfect.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


And you arbitrarily cut one every now and then at random, and you end up with a completely random room. Slightly more wastage, but I'll take that over that goofy lookin H pattern any day.

Correct. The joints will be offset from the previous course, but the space between the new joints will be the same, all across as the individual pieces in that course are all the same. And that course's joints will be the same distance from the previous course's joints, uniformly across the course as all of those are the same length, and the same length of the new course, and every course in that field.

Varied starting point, but uniform spacing of joints throughout all the courses as they are all the same piece.
