They elected to put it on by hand after I emphasized I didn't want to see over spray on anything.

I decided to allow the painters to get done before decking as well.

Re: M. O. A. D.


In my experience the painters just get in the way of your crew.

I was on a site grading while the painters were doing window trim, or some such nonsense while I was working. I had a pretty good bead on them till one moved his ladder to the next closest window....backed right into that damned ladder with the guy up two stories.

Scared the hell out of him and me, cost me a ladder, and a lesson....don't work around the painters!

Re: M. O. A. D.


The "center" column isn't in the center because the client was adamant about it not blocking his windows.

Looks awesome.

Curious about something. When you build something like this for a client, do any of them lament the loss of light underneath? How do you prep them for it, if at all?

Actually with the ceiling at 9' it's not 'cavy' feeling. And they are happy not having the sun to deal with while entertaining. It's one of the reasons we built it. The sun hammers that spot in the summer.

In fact he wants more shade. He's having a shade sail installed over the bar/BBQ.

Spiral staircases can have up to a 9.5" riser height. That's crazy.

Having all that shade over the lower window will really help cool the lower inside.

We average 9" on most of them. It's because it a radius and tight one at that. Really can't feel it.
