Online door shops - have you ever bought from any of them?

I've been looking at some of the online door shops - there are at least a dozen of them that look credible. Depending on the style, size and material, they can also offer pretty decent delivered...

My mistake, I thought you were talking $80 an hour straight time, plus benefits. $42 check rate is not unreasonable money - that's about what the union operating engineers in Santa Rosa area are...

$156K a year for a concrete finisher? Plus statutory fees and taxes? You must be billing them out for $150-$175 an hour!

Bumping this thread to ask the drywall pros - are gable end walls less than 16' tall a good reason to switch from horizontal to vertical boards? 16 footers are a bear to carry; is "no butt seams" a...

What does this say about the brand you're trying to build?

To me, it says "I don't use spell check" and

"We have no design sense".

Sorry, but you have to correct the spelling error and reprint ASAP. While you're at it, get someone who knows the first...

This is why I'm going up to take a first hand look. Truss fabricators used to be like this years ago, but (almost) all of us use them routinely now. I would expect a good wall panelizer to turn bowed...

Hadn't thought about crowning, but good catch; it's routine in stick built, of course, but I hadn't thought about it for walls built on a table.

And lining up studs with trusses is something I'll...

Bumping this old thread to ask for advice

Rather than start an entirely new thread, thought I'd resurrect this old one since my question is about panelized walls - or, to be more specific - to ask those of you who have built with panelized...

I'm skipping the phone line all the way from the pole, actually - I'll leave an extra conduit with pull tape in the joint trench for the eventual FTTH that will deliver terabits of data, but no AT&T...

Downside to excavating a pool during site/pad excavation?

Starting a new project soon, building a house on good load-bearing rocky soil at the top of a little knoll. There's a lot of grading to level the site so will have a dozer and excavator on hand for a...
