My main concern is about the planed-down 3/8" tread was of it coming apart in use. I guess if it was fully adhered to the sub floor, it might work, but I'd still be really concerned about the nose...
On this forum only, and for the last couple of weeks, I only see a total of two threads. All others have disappeared.
So this is kind of a test posting, to se if IT appears.
Just me, or is...

DANG, that radiant barrier is effin' magical. Even though it is a "single layer perforated radiant barrier (rb)" . . . "The rb also will stop any air leaks"

Air IS a "great insulator" as long as it is trapped in tiny, static spaces - like the spaces between strands of fiberglass or the bubbles in a plastic foam. Air IS the gas in IGUs unless one orders...
You'll never see a complaint, only the (capital C) Complaint after someone falls and injures themselves.
And, maybe a dumb Architect question, but wouldn't it work out better to remove subflooring...
That's what I was suggesting - except I thought there was a step or two between levels.
ESPECIALLY since your case is a single step, aka a TRIP HAZARD, make that nosing contrast with all adjacent...
I'd bring hardwood UP to the LVT, instead of LVT down to the hardwood, including at the kitchen level, adjusted for material thickness. Match width of hardwood flooring, but do steps in 5/4 material....
"I spoke with Dean.
One thing that has changed is that the ridge vent was installed and the gable vents were restricted when the siding was installed. Steel siding with perforations where the gable...

Fan fold generally comes in at a perm rating of about 5 - IF the manufacturer pokes a few holes in the facer. But it is put up without taping the seams, and will be outboard of the WRB, so...

I don't think you will get much value out of a sticky back WRB over your dusty, cellulose poking through the gaps of it, sheathing. What you want is and Air and Water Resistive barrier.
Id go with...

What Ted said at #16.
You still might have to address vapor drive issues with dens-pack, though.
And odds are good that there is some blocking in the joist bays that is going to obstruct your...
See my inserts into the quote above
You don't want to put dark paint on PVC. The stuff expands like crazy anyway, and dark just makes it worse. It will expand more than the paint can stretch in some cases.
Look at a product called...
"Sealants "expand" 50%": I think you are talking about "stretching" across the width of the joint, no. AFAIK they do not expand of their own accord.
"50%": That is the maximum range of movement....

#18: Totally impractical
Reread #15. Rippers are your friend. But the original lumber framing is going to be easiest and best, especially now that you've revealed a bunch of cantilevered roof...

dgbldr: From Home Depot:
LOTS of similar products all over-some water-borne, some solvent borne. Silane-siloxanes are pretty ubiquitous as masonry sealers.
Yes, concrete driveway, exposed agg...
240/480 = 1/2" deflection at mid span. Bouncy, bouncy

Custom order with top and bottom chords trapezoidal?
Or standard order and add your own trapezoidal rips T&B?
Once they are standing vertically, standard span tables will apply.
I'd do it with...
OZCO had a booth at JLC Live NW. I laid hands on their stuff and it is REALLY heavy and well thought out. Among other things the black through bolts and screws aren't really that. The Ozco system...

I got tired of treating my cedar deck railings every season and am running an experiment. I happened to notice that a silane-siloxane sealer I was using on the driveway said it could be used on wood....
If Joe's pdf version is not either "flattened" or locked against copying - to wit you can copy the text list from the pdf, then you should find you can paste it into a blank Excel spreadsheet and...

I am rather fond of having thresholds milled to my specification from Corian. Or DIY with a little router and table saw time.
Boy, I know there is a fair amount of vinyl siding installed w/o a WRB, but I didn't think that ever complied with code!
