They say anyone can paint (or drywall), but it takes a PROFESSIONAL to do it right the first time.
Ya know, ive done a bit of everything and I find drywall and paint to both give me trouble. Really requires a steady hand.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


You know how you rubberneck at an accident on the highway? You really should pay attention to other things, but you just have to keep looking?

That's me and this thread; all 8 pages.

Post more; I'll come back. I can't help myself.

Getting ready to rebuild this porch today and discovered that there were hacks even 100 years ago. This attempt at a beam pocket held the entire floor system. Funny thing is it held up better than the concrete supports.

It is, but just nailed to I-Joists!
Then, no flashing!
Nothing for water penetration!
And, pressure treated does rot!
Give time... Just like a stainless screw you stripped!!!
