You've probably seen them, just didn't know what it was.

Block still isn't done. At this pace I could have waited an extra 3 weeks for my normal guy. They probably would have finished about the same time.

First and last for this guy

Re: My Next One


Well, I haven't really been over there besides to drop off checks. We trucked in about 30 dump trucks of fill. Ran a mile of drain tile, and my floor package is getting dropped off tomorrow, so we can finish back filling before we get frost. It should go quick from here

A whole new architect after you started the job?!?!? That seems odd. What was the issue?

The first one was a retard. She had the ridge beam from the garage going to just nothing. Literally floating for 15' at the end. Along with several things the h/o wanted that she didn't give them.

Re: My Next One


Finished walls today, ended up leaving early because they couldn't bring my garage lumber till the morning. But got everything plumb and ready to rock n roll for the morning. I had to use the excavator to push the gable wall plumb, that was sketchy

Looks great man! If I may ask why don't you sheath your walls before you stand them up?

Re: My Next One


How did you lift the wall? You use the ex to rack it or actually lean it plumb?

5 guys. It was a big bitch, I had it perfect and braced, but I'm guessing the 20' studs aren't the best thing to try to cross brace across. The ridge is 20'1" off the deck

Usually I do, but I rent a telehandler, and I lost my opening when we had to go back to the archy. It's currently rented out for a month at a Burger King. I called everyone within 50 miles and couldn't find one.

Gotcha. Sounds like people are keeping busy up your way. Always good to hear. Looks great. Looking forward to see the updates!
