    This is the wall I would be more considered about if I were that preacher.
    Every stud is connected by 14.5 in pressure blocks which were nailed through the sides and screwed to the red iron with 2 and 3/4 inch self tapping screws. The weak point being the nails for sure.
    We pony walled up off the 10 foot wall by
    plumbobing down from the perlins above and screwed our top plate on the roof rake then ballooned up tight. The part that looks like a header up top is a singled 2x8 and basically a nailer for wall board in between the runners.

    The stairway combined with the wall to wall floor above should act as an angle brace on the side to side action I'm thinking. Its the upward roof movement that worries me most don't think its coming down much though.

    I could be dead wrong whole thing may be laying in a pile right meow, will pray about it.

    yeah Stoney that wall is a bit more challenging in many ways as i am sure you know....would be a interesting building to go look at when you get a decent snow or ice storm....im guessing under full snow load that beam will be holding ~550# a foot or so

    btw.....good looking framing job from afar

    Less blurry pic here I think. Yea Taz here in central Ar we get some snow but rarely is it a big event, normally just a dusting. Springtime winds and Summer storm systems from the gulf are the real deal though.

    Thanks for the kind words sir.

    Not my work area sir. We have Marvo cutting and running wood for 3 of us most times. He's a mess but he's a dang good at keeping everyone busy.

    Man I put some of that snap down laminate floor in my place yester and today holy crap my knees are shot taking a 3 day weekend I think. Last few pieces I was dragging myself across the floor on my elbows and whining like an ole lady and hollering for the other old lady to bring my tools to me, never again!

    I have about 1100 square feet to do Myself. So far I've succeeded in delaying the project. Told wifey if she wants to paint, it should be done before I lay the floor. Son of a bitch, if she didnt have the place painted a week later.
    I helped a friend with His house awhile back and He bought one of these. Very handy, you can make your cuts inside the house with no saw dust.

    That woulda helped Smoother, it was the up and down and out to my saw on the back porch that killed. Also was doing some repairs under an old house in Little Rock at the same time not sure if I'll recover or not. I say don't do it!

    There's no hope for me in this one. The shit went on sale earlier in the summer and in a moment of weakness I agreed to order it. So now its been stacked under the bed and in the closets for the last 4 months. In short, I'm fooked.

    Looking good there Nic. Damn a three car garage! Plenty of room to store your stuff. I've only got 2 and the Blazer is in one. But if the wife had her way it would be out on the driveway and she be moving stuff in. That's the problem about living 15 feet above the water table. :-)
    PS. I like where they put the house number. ;-0

    I have more tales than I have time to type. One that comes to mind is I was doing some work for a GC maybe 20 years ago. The customer was Ridley Scott and the house was on PB Island, the inland part. Anyway his wife (really easy going woman, and smart) wanted 10" crown and 7" base molding. Not a big deal except she wanted to stain it so, all had to be 24 ft. runners. Pricey, and I had to have it tooled up, with samples for her to choose from. Can't make any mistakes with that stuff. So one day I see Ridley (he wasn't there much) and asked a couple of questions, he said it all started with a new roof, then bullet proof windows from Germany that had to be approved for hurricane protection, then an addition, well ya know how a woman with access to money can be. Worked there almost a month, was one of the best jobs I ever done on the island. Most of those people you need to add 300% to the tab for the aggravation.

    We need a 3 car garage because we have 3 vehicles. I am not looking forward to the moving part, but a new home is always nice.

    No body tell Andial, but I used my leaf blower yesterday to clean leaves and crap off the driveway so my wife could put sealer on it. Not sure if there are now leaves in the sealer, we'll just drive over them anyway. I was one bucket short of having enough to finish. Wife was to tired to put down more, so I didn't go get another bucket. Something for another day.

    PS. I did help, but then Daughter-in-law thought I was having to much fun and took my squeegee away from me and helped the wife finish.

    Yeah, I was watering it down, sweeping - until I thought of the leaf blower, hauling buckets and dumping out the sealer, cleaning up and bagging the empty buckets. The women folk were just squeegeeing it out.

    Zoomed in real close to check the specs on those margins, looks so good i'd almost bet silver you built everything to a reference line.

    am doing daddyo daycare all week about to go nuts.
    The gf had a close family friend die up in St. Louis
    from get this, mad cow disorder.
    She started forgetting some things 2 months ago and after a few trips to the doctor gets the diagnosis.
    They tell the girl she has maybe a year, doesn't make it two weeks. Sad yes but its got me in a real pinch here
    Ok looks like it's time to pick out clothes for school tomorrow then story time, then when she's out will do the dishes and get some laundry going. Miss will be back tomorrow hopefully so gotta get some clean up done so it looks like I've really been on top of things here.

    Looks good Dialbro, give me a caulk gun and a little putty heck I'd make those little cracks looka real good.

    Pops, little bro and I started a little project Saturday that some crackhead framers bailed on.
    Its a pole barn people are moving mom and pops into. We agreed to finish what the other dudes flaked out on framing wise which was two small exterior walls with 3 winders and a 3oh door cut into the metal wall.

    In addition we will be running Galvo metal on the entire ceiling, insulating, hanging interior doors, running paneling on walls, trimming with pine 1by4 and some cedar, as well as installing crap cabinets from home depot.

    If it looks half decent when we're done might attach a jpeg img or 2.
