    Great shots, can’t wait to see the rest of it. Would be awesome to see a timelapse video of the winter building.

    From what I know as long as the guns don’t freeze he is framing homes . Few weeks back he shoveled off his roof to finish it .

    Always willing to learn .

    this is only for minor gaps .. most of the foundations i frame on top of are icf which we do ourself. we actually set a elevation for the concrete to finish to or even cut the top course of block off at a level line. any variations are wihtin 1/4″

    too much room for a lot of compression.

    We don’t generally shut down for the cold itself but if it is blowing like crazy i can’t stand that. We will work in -40 but at that rate I just have to make the judgment call on if it would productive or not.

    That is cold to work in man. Whereabouts are you in our great white north Joe if you don’t mind me asking?

    The wind is the killer. It’ll just suck the heat right out of me.

    Do any of you and your crew use battery heated gloves? If you do, I’m looking for a good pair, but it’s hard to judge what is good or bad on the internet. Know of any good brands?

    Looks like it will be a nice sized house,
    Not much to stop that wind from blowing, you look like it’s in the open, new development?
    Nice pictures, and pretty good progress despite the weather.

    No sorry we just use regular white cotton gloves with grip dots. If you keep your core warm your hand’s shouldn’t be that far behind.

    It is pretty open out there. These home’s are on estate lot’s. This is just a bungalow with just over 6200sqft including finish basement area.

    That’s terrible, how could anyone live in such a small home lol,
    Just kidding, it’s huge.
    Hopefully you can get some more pictures when it is in the finishing stages.
