Re: Oklahoma Style...


As a carpenter I would like to say my only gripe about hanging shutters on your work would be that I'm covering some of it up.

Beautiful craftsmanship

Ugh, I absolutely hate working with the stone on that fireplace. Crap is hard and won't cut straight for nothing. Give me the soft white stuff any day.

I'd love to do it but right now I have six different houses in various stages of framing ahead of me that I am hoping to be able to get to.

And this weather IS NOT cooperating.

beautiful work. I love the della robbia weave which I have seen predominantly in the southern states. Nice to see the style being carried on.

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Work looks good but I'd have some pissed off people if I left the site like that for a few days. That scaffolding to the right in the first pic is an accident waiting to happen and all the material strewn about is a trip hazard. I know some guys that would see nothing but that.

I love the look of protruding brick on a wall,
but, those stones on top of the window dont look right.
I am not used to seeing a running bond with a keystone.
wont hold its weight

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Yeah leaving the site like that gives ample oppurtunity for someone to drive by and call it in to osha. I know one scaffold high its not very dangerous but the things OSHA woulda pick you apart for in that picture would blow your mind and checkbook

Re: Oklahoma Style...


You guys talking about the board hanging over where the two scaffolds don't meet at the corner? The split level laying on the ground was holding up the ends of those boards when the walk board was a level lower. I was in a hurry to beat the weather when I topped out the left side of the corner. There will be a step out/corbel on that corner, the split level will be raised up and hold the board when I top that part out. Didn't need it to top the other side out and I didn't have time to mess with it then. I was the only one on it, none of my help. Besides I tied the other end of the board down just in case

The one at the right, there is another board above the lower one, no one will be on the one hanging over, just never got moved when walk boards were raised.

Boarding is done inside...away from prying eyes, I've also seen more fines given out to boarders and tapers than anyone else.

To me it just looks messy and like the site was abandoned in the middle of a tear down. The thing that really jumps out to me is the one scaffold brace that isn't attached to anything on one end and the rubble strewn all around. Trip hazards are the #1 cause of accidents on jobs. someone trips on some rubble then comes down to a brace in the throat, or the groin. It takes no time to take that brace down nor to put it back up again. It would take 15 minutes to load the rubble into a wheel barrow and dump it or to consolidate the junk.

It's too bad because it looks like you do good work, but the FIRST thing I see is a mess.

I've seen guys trip over a drop cord then fall flat on their face. I trip over chit all the time and still stay upright! There's an art to it!

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Agreed, people can trip over anything at any time. You can use the argument that I may get hit by a truck at any time so why ever take any care at all. I've never seen that argument work successfully in a liability situation.

And the site in a messy state isn't only about those working on the job. It's for the homeowners as well and their friends, or the guy cleaning the porta potty or just some jerk who wants to take a closer look.
