    I will try to get some better pics next week on a home we are buying. Roof was installed less than 3 years ago, and is one of the worst I have ever seen. Plywood not breaking on trusses, zero flashings, vents/boots install wrong, visible fasteners, and smaller shingles pieced in in the field.

    Initially I though maybe I could do a few band aids since I have so much other work to do, but I now realize all of the roof must be redone before I get any drywall installed. I am sure this thing leaked the first time it rained.

    I hope you are getting this house for a good price, sounds like you have some work to do on it!

    Here is the pic of hack job I mentioned in a previous post.

    Why is that an open frame wall? Is that in the garage?

    maybe you can do a video of the whole project, could be interesting to see what steps you will take.

    Somebody really sucks at basic framing skills. Rip it out and redo imo. It’s beyond any bandaid solutions.

    We did get a pretty good price, but the whole roof deal almost blew it. Homeowner got about 9k for wind damage to the roof 3 years ago and didn’t disclose it initially. I did my own inspection, and knew the roof was but a few years old. I found several issues and was going to try to band aid it for the time being. After they revealed the settlement, I went over and did a very thorough inspection of just the roof. Turns out my band aid would have been wasted money, as nothing is worth saving. I was tempted to renegotiate, but I knew that could open the place back up for other offers, so I just accepted it.

    We have about 40-45000 planned in reno, plus another 40k to add a really nice garage. The whole first floor is gonna be reworked, as the location of the kitchen, bath, and laundry will all get moved. I have a 40 yard dumpster coming Friday, so we are gonna jump on it and get things rolling.

    I don’t know but I assume that the 2×4 bowed in the drying progress. Might have looked perfect when the wall was framed.

    Why put a remodel can in the cavity when you can put it in the bottom chord of a truss?

    And they hacked apart the girder truss too… solid.

    Nice work. LOL Guess they figured that extra board was there just for looks.

    Obviously. The decision of where it has to go matters a lot more than where the cavities happen to be

    Going for how it looked on the outside rather on how it was installed.

    Why did you cut the bottom cord of the guider ???? You never cut a truss or guider.
    Edit==== sorry I’m in the hack thread,,, Some people just have no idea. Sad.

    Not only is this “thing” ugly and just plain weird…it was built like crap too!

    The 6×6 posts are apparently original, but all of the cladding as replaced last fall. 245 tubes of caulking AND window glazing compound later, and it’s fall I g apart!

    The pine cladding was installed with a 16ga nail gun and as 23 vs pinner. None if the fasteners are outdoor rated either!

    That sire is interesting. Kind of a pergola walkway?

    What are you going to do with it?

    Jon I believe that is for grapevines. A lot of people construct those and then plant grapevines that work their way up and eventually provide shade as well as fruit. My grandparents had a set up like that.

    Found this one in the basement of a new build we are trimming. I first noticed the dip in the floor when i was walking over it. It’s just under a half inch dip in the floor.
