Be sure to post up final pics of your desk, Reilly. It will be fun to compare it to your technical drawings!

hey there say, pinckbrown... wow, what a NEAT house... thanks for sharing...
me, had not stopped in here, on the ol' building thread, for a bit... but, since i was just 'building this bell' so to speak, thought i'd post it, since i SAW this thread bump, :)

will go back and see what other neat stuff is going on, too, with the other folks here...


here is bell, just a rough start that i will learn to perfect... cut the wine bottle in half...
actually the bottle-neck part (which is usually used for this type of stuff), fell a bit to the floor, in the cut process, so i had to use the table-set side...
but, it turned out nice... it is a gift for one of my other brothers...


well, happy building to all, :)

The ladder in the gravel is even scarier (not to mention its angle)!
My bro-in-law is now paralyzed from a similar escapade 5 months ago.
A nice beefy boom lift is pretty cheap comparatively.

Reilly - I am so sorry to hear about your brother in law. I wish him the best. I checked on a boom lift - 1 day including deposit and delivery/pickup - $850.
Seemed like a lot at the time, but obviously the much wiser choice.
Angle was extreme, gravel was dangerous.

Yeah, because of a ladder he went from flying F-16's and B767's to flying a wheelchair.

Wood frame house builders need to up their game and join the modern world.

I avoid building wood frame structures and the contractors that play this game. It's because of the halfassed nature of framers regarding what they believe is an OK way of doing things. 2x4 scaffolding while instructed to skimp on nails, 40' ladders without fall restraint, non GFCI power in a field of mud, no cohesive plan if someone gets injured, etc.

All predicated on the odds that OSHA or Worker's Compensation Boards have bigger fish to fry regarding commercial buildings and leave the bo-jang neighbourhood stick frame clusterf*#k masters to chance.

Pay the freight.

That is a great looking damn near microhouse pinck.

Try not to be lucky with ladders,be smart.

Since 82 I have been building houses ,1 accident.Stacked drywall [not by my crew]fell over and broke a mans ankle while building kitchen soffits on a rain day.

Some have balance and brains to work off ladders ,some do not.

To generalize about "framers" with such a broad brush must mean you are a painter.

No I'm not a painter. I do respect painters and what they require to be effective. All trades get the same level of obligation from me to provide a safe environment to work in. Everyone is there to make money, not be a hero.

As for my opinion based on multiple experiences with wood frame builders, I'm comfortable feeling the way I do.
