    I’m still scratching my head trying to understand what’s the purpose of that 2×4 around the window. Over the drywall.
    Hmm, maybe a window stool?

    No, just regular stool.

    Its clearly a structural window…. Maybe a window bench.

    Wow – You are clearly better off without your former partner

    I think he means stool as in stool sample, or just crap.

    I have to share this little invention which holds up some patio lights.
    Not sure if that’s the right purpose of a metal stucco corner bead LOL

    Any bets if this will hold up during high winds? 😛

    I doubt it will hold up to a stiff breeze- or a light drizzle

    That is definitely the definition of the word temporary.

    Uncovered these beauties while demo-ing a kitchen. Foamed into place. And notice how the pony walls don’t even have a top plate. Nice job 👍🏻

    Ha…cute. It looks like that wall was taller (maybe full height?) at one time based on the reciprocating saw marks on the 2x4s.

    Yeah that could very well be the case. The house was built in the 50’s and as my buddy and I go through it opening walls the crazier and crazier things are getting. I am glad we are just subs on this job and the headache of this crazy house isn’t on us so much as the general. Plus we went in knowing the budget was tight, which in my mind is a bad situation for the homeowners because renos are hard to bid because you never know what will be behind walls and what things are unaccounted for. It’s always good as the homeowner to have a slush fund for those unforeseen issues and from what I gather there is no slush fund 😳😳😳. As long as we are paid for the framing and finish we do I will be happy.

    Yeah no kidding. I never stops amazing me. As we open this house up more we finding more “custom” carpentry all over.

    As someone who does not claim to have any knowledge in these things (and thus who would not just make it up as I go along- some people are a bit to willing to try things when they dont know what the heck they are doing) – what purpose would a top plate have? To hold each stud even and secure?

    That, and to keep the studs from twisting. It also acts as a fire retardant.
