Where is the beef? The teaser said there was a video. The video was 30 seconds of NOTHING!
It is great that you have figured out how to work by yourself but, I assume that you are trying to make a living. You can earn your hourly rate for the work that you can find that you get paid for. You can leverage that and earn infinitely more, by leveraging your time and the skills of others by hiring some help.
Make that first and fourth photos....
Attics are usually dark. I hope you made the top of all of the walk-boards flush. It looks like a lip/trip hazard in the center photo.
This looks like an especially good practice with deep insulation. Working mostly in the south, I have done this for years nailing the walkboards directly to the top of the joists trading some insulation for ease of access.
I fill the ferrule with solvent an then "whip" it all out to ease cleanup. Otherwise, that is pretty much the way I do it.
Even though this is from the video vault, it is interesting that it no prep was made to the window or trim being painted. Throughout the clip you can see the water damage in the bottom corner of the window and at about 3:05 you can see a ridge of paint(?) that need to be sanded off on the left side of the trim. Also, It is a lot of extra work to paint over a radiator without covering it up.
Some creative thought went into this but after reviewing the photo's at the link above, I am left wondering if I should feel sorry for the neighbors.
I cannot believe that this is in compliance building codes Could an engineer or someone truly familiar with please comment on this.
What a waste of time.
The September 7th comparison is apples and oranges. The Kreg screw has good applications but the shank diameter is tiny. It is undersized for any framing application that I can think of. The framing screws are massive in comparison.
Please followup on the statement above; "Cold rebending of rebar is prohibited" I have been building and forming for over 40 years and have never seen or been around anyone or any job site where rebar was not cold bent.
