Funny, Ed. Exactly what I'm drawing up right now.

Thanks for your response. Yes, that's it. After digging around in the attic a little yesterday, I noticed that the hip rafters seemed to be a different pitch than the commons. Then I...

Hello roof cutters.
I've done a few large(r) additions in my time, but never a gable-end addition to an existing hip roof. The architect has the pitch of the existing hip roof as 5/12. I got in...

10 bucks more than those batteries at Amazon.

I use my bosch rotohammer for drilling into anything concrete. I use my Milwaukee Magnum for holesaw applications. Makita 18v for everything else.
I believe Drive replaced Google Docs. But I'm a confirmed Dropbox user as well. Indispensable, really.
Exactly. As I recall, the R.O. for Johnson pocket door frames, should be 2x the width of the door + 1 inch.
This is a pros only site; you may get few, if any responses. If I were you, I'd head over to www.greenbuildingadvisor.com. They don't have the pros-only policy and there are...

I'll just miss watching PSH tear it up on the screen. He was truly amazing.
I've been interested in that little Senco for a long time. Just seems to keep falling out of first position on my tool wish list. Specs say it's 20 lbs. vs The GR's 23 lbs. FWIW.
This is a great idea. I love building stairs more than any other thing I do as a solo GC/carpenter. I'm not very good at it, however, having learned nearly all of it thorough trial and error (and...
I agree with Richie. Where's the 'like' button?
Thanks you guys, all of you.
Yes, the door is hung (it's a prehung) but I'll be taking it down for this. I have a great painter, but he's not available for this little job. I just need...
Thanks, Dan. I appreciate it.
I've got two new exterior fir doors that my client wants either lightly stained and clearcoated or just clearcoated. We're still working that out. Currently the doors have no finish of any...

Do you have a palm nailer? I use mine for all my Simpson hardware... Pick your nails (in bulk) and go.

The forms get staked into the footing trench. Vertical stakes to hold the forms up, kickers and spreaders to keep them spaced and plumb(ish).
Here are a couple of more photos. ...

I did this last summer. 40' x 16'-6" addition. Footing is 15" x 8". Stemwall is 6" wide by 30some inches tall.
It was my first foundation. I made my forms out of 2x4 and 1/2" ply. Probably...
We've had a pretty cold spell here, too. My fingers are also the first to go. All "thermal" or otherwise cold-weather-rated gloves suck, IMO. These things go a long way to helping me out.

Cool pad. I had a feeling you might have something to say about Mr. Brubeck, Dick. And I'm not really surprised that it doesn't have anything to do with his music...

91 year old jazz great Dave Brubeck died in Connecticut today. He would have been 92 tomorrow.
This is a pretty cookin' live version. A bit faster...

Why the hate on the floating floors? Not that I have a particular like for them, just wondering...

Oh crap that's funny.
I doubt that the OP will be back for this. So, I'm gonna jack his thread if you all will humor me?
If you're not using PVC exterior trim, what are you guys using these days? Barge boards,...
