I've already done that once before, Didn't work out great and ended up with a pair of wire strippers. the mop and gloves are the way to go

My current job. Dealing with the sh$t framing in this house is definitely a head scratcher.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Well, itís an old barn that was moved assembled and put on a foundation. They actually cut it in 1/2 to move it. Probably moved in the 30ís. Donít know how old the frame actually is. But itís really been hacked over the years. Preventive maintenance is another thing. But absolutely no updating at all. Was still knob and tube where we are

I did one of these this summer all the rafter tails along the entire back side of a house were shot. So we sistered them all solid blocked it all and replaced the rim joist. Re sided the whole house and had new gutters put on. Mind you all of this was caused by a wet crawl space most likely due to rain water. Couple weeks later i get a call back telling me i need to come cut off all the downspouts because they are extending too far from the house.
