Making these posts is giving a much needed reprieve from the filthy grind.

Here's some fuckery the likes I have yet to grace my eyes upon. This is the water heater/bathroom floor. Rather than framing it it looks like they spray foamed the floor in place! WTF over?

Nice collection Misty.

It’s been awhile since posting here guess I’ll pick up where I left off.

Heavy assed beam for the cathedral in the living room which will also catch and support rear main roof span going in last December.

Had a third guy on this project for 2 weeks then it was back to pops and i.

A shot of the main span using said beam for support

On a mail train.
This is what I used to do ha!....

it’s an ok set of steps , setup was good although I didn’t see if they cut 45 degree angles on the bottoms of those risers....it helps a lot when floating and cleaning up before risers are pulled and steps are faced....

the steel was bad , practically sitting on the ground...I didn’t see them putting any steel in the treads either , we would put a couple of vertical bars and two horizontal bars in each step.....

would also advise them to at least have thickened edges along each side if not a damn footing and pour it all monolithically....

otherwise in Commifornia those steps will slide off into the pier at Santa Monica...

from me , the retired concrete critic.
