I love GarageJournal. I learn so much from peoples' builds there. I also learn quite a bit from Kastein and you, Dreese. Thanks!

Are you like best buds with the building inspector at this point? How many times has he been out to your house?

Your issues with Bagster are the primary reason I refused to use them for my own remodel. I rented a dumpster instead. One of the best $325 I ever spent.

Also wtf is going on with your deck joists. Did someone just... randomly cut 90% through some of them? :stonk:

Interesting. Where does the insulation go (if any)?

It's an interior wall and both rooms are on the same heating zone so no need for insulation.

Load bearing drywall my rear end, this piece of poo poo house had load bearing AIR when I bought it :v:

Sorry, I meant the floor. Are floors that are the outside envelope not insulated? I've never actually built an entire house piece by piece before. (Yet.)

Gat drat. And I thought moving my 30 sheets around was heavy. My back hurts just looking at that.

(How helpful is the drywall handle? I should have gotten one for myself...)

That looks like a challenging mudding job. Is there some miracle tool to make it easier?

Yeah, a phone.


Leperflesh posted:

I'd be seriously tempted to just hire someone. Like for a lot of this build Kastein has gone way above code and probably wouldn't have gotten that quality from a sub, but mudding is just mudding and a pro is gonna do it way faster and get the same or better result.

:yeah:

I actually enjoy hanging drywall, but gently caress all that mudding. Hire a guy/team with a bazooka and stand back.

eta: Kastein your drywall looks great. You do good work there.

Hell yeah stair treads.

I made one of these when I redid my stair treads/risers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL_xOq3h6xY

It helped immensely. Like yourself, I completely hosed up my first few cuts, but as I got more experience with it the rest of the cuts went well.

(I also made my own mini-track saw jig, because I didn't have an extra $600 lying around for a track saw.)

I was mostly referring to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKA7xf7Mqxo where he just blithely throws out the recommendation for the Festool track saw.

Can't believe you didn't construct a massively over-engineered scaffolding, comprised of dimensional lumber bigger than the tree and at least some welding. 0/10
