    I’ve done a good bit of winter framing in Ohio….I could just imagine framing in a Canadian winter.

    Hey buddy thanks lol. Well they were sooooo bad we had to shoot them all at there different heights. No shimming. I shoot ever 4th layout and cut them with the use of a rotary laser. Nail top plates on and scribe the in-between studs.

    Is that about normal in your neck of the woods?

    It definitely discouraging when you show up but ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get out of the basement. Lasers are essential tool for a framer now a days. I feel if ya don’t have one, you are doing it wrong.

    How do you go about making your wall right with the foundation that way? I have put down the sill plate and shimmed at each layout to get a level starting place.

    I saw a guy lay plates tight then chisel out or electric plane the joist locations rather than shim. A solid method but time……..omg

    When I looked at the first couple of pictures I smiled and said to myself thats what its all about right there. A few guys cold weather thinking out a build and making it come together.

    I miss working with a couple of guys………then I thought its not the cold its the dam wind that kills the motivation and fuels tempers.

    I don’t miss working in the cold. The first house I ever helped build was in the dead of winter. I was young and able , I could never do it now.
    Looks like a very big house your building.

    As much time shovelling as putting in nails. I do not envy having to work around the conditions you are.
