Brandon, you answered my curiosity on the footings/foundation; beyond that I'd be interested in the details of any bridging and any floor / top-plate details if at all unusual. Helped a friend frame a house with steel a couple of years back, took awhile to get a 'feel' for it, but have to admit being converted to the point of not framing with wood if I ever built a place.

when kept simple can be super competitive with traditional R22 walls (which is the new code requirement.)

Brandon--is that NH state code?

Bamboo, as far as I know NH has no statewide code, it's pretty loose here. But the newest NBC mandates R22 walls. We follow that as a minimum.

my mistake Brandon! I thought R-40 was your code

R-22 is NBC--and if I'm not mistaken IBC

thanks guys--
they cast a pretty sweet arrow too![tooting my own horn]

I can't build squat.

Next best thing- I hired a young wood craftsman to make the below triangular table out of Douglas fir (timber pulled from an old building that was demolished in downtown LA sometime ago...). My wife's birthday present to me...

Jefe, is that what you're building?

My carpentry skills pale in comparison to an undertaking of that sort. Chapeau!

I'm building a new steel gate for the Garden we planted in the back half of our driveway. Still a long way to go. I am going to start the decorative leaves and such this week.

Totally self congratulatory, but I kicked some ass at work today. I worked the tie-ins from the existing structure to the new one solo. I made soffit from the old building flow into the new one seamlessly, despite many obstacles. I tied a timberframe into a wall, and built the largest return on a gable known to man. Trimmed it as well.

I may not be the best builder, but this is one of those feel good days where you start to think that you're excellent. I'm sure I'll encounter something tomorrow that puts me in my place.

The Tye, I wish I knew how to weld, strong work!
