    But the reason there ain't no shelves there now because a bedroom is going in there.

    Oh, and thanks, smooth, you were just kidding though, right? You and I both know its a mess.

    I forgot I had a couple pictures. The spilled water got under the laminate when the puddle seeped under the wall then spread quickly across the seams in the tile in the closet. The tile is like a step down from the laminate so it moved really fast at that point. That way it was able to get under the floor in 2 rooms by the time we noticed it. I started pulling it all up at that point.
    Water can spread a really long way when it's compressed between 2 flat surfaces. What a freaking mess!
    All fixed now though and I learned new swear words.

    Dog flipped his water dish over after we had gone to bed. I never heard a thing. He claims he has no idea what happened.
    I wiped up the puddle in the morning and it had already started buckling. It got worse from there.

    My favorite thread on this forum by far! On that deck, beautiful work sir framesalot. You working from a BP, or off the top of your head?

    No one down here would build it like that. All ya would see is those fugly Simpson brackets holding everything up. When I built mine years ago I used lag bolts for most of it, and plugged the holes and made then disappear, but then I did it without a permit. Anything bolted to the house needs a permit, free standing not so much. Then again we don't do two story decks very much either. We have strict wind load codes. Even sheet siding has to be nailed every 4 inches, same with roof OSB.

    Smoother i really don't have much of an ego but it does feel good when someone says a nice thing like Hemster did there.

    Also im proud to be silver's #2 biggest fan sir, you know at!

    Crackers your right me olde pops is a bad man.

    Here's a shot of how we set up the free stand action, notice the 7.5 inch thick vertical block on the wall, theres another about 2 feet out of the shot. Leveled over from the seat cut on the level and temped stringer then shot the inside landing perimeter to those temp blocks, allowing us to temp up the entire landing exactly where it belonged without being a floppy mess, little temp tricks!

    It was in SW FL in the early eighty's that I got into house building. They were strapping and clipping and hangers all over the place. Not sure how many inspectors got their hands in the cookie jar. Most houses we did were on stilts. Good concept when you are the coast. Mass has adopted the International Building Code with some rules of their own added. Houses are covered from earthquakes to hurricanes.

    Simpson brackets are the cat's meow as long as they aren't showing. I used them on my deck for all the 4 by's to the concrete columns. But they are not noticeable. The deck 'sir stonedey' is building would look like hell with them showing so much.

    Yeah, building code. Everything has to be strapped down tight. They even spec what nails to use here in PBC. They went bat crazy after Andrew blew through Miami. Even limited the soffet overhang. Engineered trusses only,and they have to be braced.
    During Andrew if one roof lifted it would crash into your neighbor, who btw was only 30 feet away and take out his roof, and on again for blocks.
    All that doesn't really matter to the big builders who need to keep their costs down so they pay off the inspectors.
    I was working in a new home on Palm Beach Island that had a 50 x 50 foot area with a 30' ceiling. They anchored into the slab a 1" threaded steel bar every 32" with a plate on top and a turnbuckle in between to tension the roof trusses down so's they wouldn't lift in a storm.
    Ya haven't lived until ya hang and finish 3/4" drywall 30 feet up on a scissor lift? Craziest place I ever worked in. They didn't want any interior door trim. So they had the door frames made with a milled slot that we inserted "L" bead into, and finished to it. Really rich people go l00king for stupid ideas just to impress their friends. :-)

    Not the norm, but what the architect specked out for that room, and fire rated also, so that meant we used that joint compound with the fiberglass slivers in it. It is red in color and has a higher fire rating than regular mud.. I've seen them use multi layer 1" green board in high rises, in a floor to roof column that all the fart fans vented to. The updraft was so strong on this 14 story building that it would suck the drywall to the studs. We were removing some portion (3x3 ft.) of the column that had mold, and when we finally cut through it with the saws-all it went flying up and out the top. Who knows where it wound up, as we didn't ask after looking on the roof for it.

    Yeah double layered 5/8 is the norm here also.

    I read a good business book a long time ago written by a business owner of a couple of Cadillac dealerships in Texas.
    There was a chapter in there called The Customer Is Not Always Right.
    In a nutshell , he had no problem sending customers down the street when he smelled trouble.
    I did a concrete job for an idiot once. Widened his driveway , poured sidewalks around the side of the garage all the way around to the backyard patio , which I also made bigger.
    Probably 5-6 yards of concrete , half of it wheelbarrowed around back.
    Anyway , when I was finished , forms all stripped and job site cleaned up , I knocked on his door to get paid.
    The customer to me he would pay me later , after he seen what the concrete was going to do.
    I told him that I guarentee two things about concrete , it will get hard and it will crack. And if you don't pay me right now I'm going to get my 8 pound sledge hammer and breakup all this new concrete and haul it off.
    I got my money and he got a good concrete job with control joints , expansion joints , construction joints , a light broom finish after everything was layed down and troweled twice , and sprayed with commercial curing compound.

    Edit : the name of the book was Customers For Life...

    Looking good Dial, i zoomed in real tight on the cut, very professional looking painting.

    We finished the stairs Wednesday except for the permanent railing. Homeowners idea to drag the little wooden deck from an out building and attach it to the bottom, worked out ok. Sorta like a fondly remembered ex-girlfriend, we figured out the right places to touch her in order to bring the ol’ girl back to life...

    20170412_160513.jpg
    Should be back there next week to install railing using galvo conduit for spindles.

    We started the little frame job Thursday and to our surprise, no power pole. Off to a bit of a slow start, it's been a long week Sirs.

    Here's a pic of the slab for Crackers.

    20170413_074757.jpg

    And some wooded action.

    20170414_150511.jpg

    Birthday is tomorrow, will be push mowing for the big egg bonanza on Sunday.

    Dog tired and we've got guests for the weekend from out of state. Heading to get a bonfire started and some beers swallowed, sirs.
