When framing new construction,we have to play close attention to some of the material thicknesses.I don't often get to work in new construction homes but I am right now and need to do a bit of ranting.
I have windows tilted on the face where they are 3.5 inches inset on the bottom and 3 3/4" at the top. Oak moldings just don't bend that far. My customer actually worked with me today and saw every obstacle I had to overcome. He did this because when I looked over the job I refused to give an estimated price and instead went with an hourly rate. At the end of the day my customer was fully aware that his builder slammed things together and he now has to pay the price to make it all come together
I very very rarely see a 2x6 that is anything but 5 1/2". On the other hand, anything wider than a 2x6 is anybodies guess. 3/8" variance in a single bunk is not uncommon.We've had 2x6 that measure any where from 51/2" to 5 3/4".
