Being brand new to the site, I failed to familiarize myself with the site etiquette regulations. If I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words, I do sincerely apologize. In the future, I will be sure to use the colourful emoticons to express my vulgar side. Thanks for the rebuke Leo.


So, if I may repost the Bond residents project, I will keep my rants in check.

I was looking for the first one when I saw "2". I don't think many carpenters would take offense to it, this site is very well policed in that they don't go over board.

Think of this site as more of a chamber of commerce party atmosphere, you don't want to be "that" guy but at the same time, inside construction stuff seems to be fine.

Really impressive work by the way.

Dang. I thought it was one of those where a big wind comes up and blows the whole thing down.

To paraphrase someone, "at some point, you have enough garage bays."

5 weeks?! how tall was the main ridge? how many sq ft? the longest a roof ever took us was 9 days with 5-6 guys and we stick-framed it.

that 3,500 sq ft "ranch"

Come set a 10,000 sq ft with me next week. All trusses. 35' bearing elevation. We'll see how fast you can set and sheath that. Seriously?? Bragging about stick framing that single story in 9 days vs that monstrosity chips did with trusses. Come on.

I wasn't bragging. I was seriously asking. I posted the picture and stated the time and size as reference.
Well my apologies then. I don't know if you deal with a lot of trusses, on small houses, yes they're easier. On big cut up roofs, I'd rather stick frame it. Over sheathing for valleys. Big floppy 12/12 scissors trusses with no ridge board to stabilize them. It's a nightmare.
