As much as I appreciate the interesting fix described here ,,,I don't get it either ,,,lets go to the video tape
I am confused as well, I believe the part of the doors that have the hinge is placed over the clamps creating an A shape that allows the inner edges to be painted. But,,, I might be wrong.
I am curious as to why the use of a setting compound is not recommended. I was lucky enough to be invited to US Gypsum's train the trainer course and at that time they were adamant about using Setting compound when working with mesh tape and patches.
I too questioned not gaping the sheathing at the place they butt. Since many framers in our area frame old school by nailing down shoe plates on accurate chalk lines , create the upper plates on top of the shoe plates, do the marking for windows , doors etc and pull the plates back to toenail the studs. We have found that this gives us the most reliably straight walls.Despite the curvature of the plate material
All of the comments above ring true. As a 17 year Carpentry educator in a CTE ( new name for Vo - Techs) school our hurdle is convincing middle and high school guidance counselors that the skilled trades are a viable career path for our youth. Additionally parents need to be on board with realizing that not every son or daughter needs to go to college. I have a Carpentry graduate that achieved his Masters at Rutgers, attained a Human resources job ( 15.00 per hour ) but decided he would rather be back in the Carpenters Union where he already had completed 3 years of apprenticeship. He Currently is earning in excess of 50.00 per hour as a foreman with the Union.
We need to whet the appetites of our youth with exposure to the skilled trades in their younger years . Perhaps it's time to bring back Shop classes to schools.
My only question is , did you " true up" the length of the 8' 2" x 4" s ? In this part of NJ our 8' studs come in slightly longer than the 8' dimension. This would force the framing crew to cut all the studs to a uniform dimension .
