Current Projects: Keifer residence

Installing the peal and seal subroof membrane that goes under the metal roofing.

Jen, Ty, and I walking through the job with Jon & Peggy, reviewing cabinet plans, and making changes.

Ken installing one of seven solatubes in the master bath.

Steve trimming the roof decking to fit.

Filling in the garage slab.

I often make drawings on framing members to make field adjustments and explain details to the tradesmen that they might not understand from reading the plans.

The green zip board has a water resistive coating designed to repel any water that might get behind the siding.  All joints are taped to add to the air tightness of the home.  panels are run horizontally with blocking in between to create a flatter and stronger wall that will allow siding to run flat and true with no humps and dips.

Robbie and Jen discussing the details.

Ty & Jen setting grade for the garage slab.
Setting the laminated veneer lumber (LVL) beams and floor trusses.
Drilling into the pilings where Titen screw anchors will attach the hold downs.
Cutting all thread rods to insert into the piling pockets to attach to the beam hold downs.

Checking for plumb on the pilings.  We want plumb, straight, and aligned, particularly where they will be exposed on the back porches.

Plumbing up the pilings
