    Thank you for sharing that Kurt and for the great pics and succinctly detailed explanation. I really really enjoyed reading that.

    I was particularly impressed with this welded chain and flail technique to widden the hole below the floor. That’s brilliant!

    We made a flail to loosen the sand around the edges and in the bottom of the hole by welding 3 short pieces of chain to a 1/2″ rod and spinning it in the hole. We would spin the flail then stop and suck everything loose out of the hole with the shop vac. we repeated this process until the hole was the proper size.

    You should get BTP forum bonus points for a post like this imo, especially having used the Bosch dust shroud accesory in accomplishing the task. Kudos man! 👍

    Wink wink @bethepro, or whoever is at the helm right now.

    Today I worked at getting shelving supports up in the bathroom. It’s the first time I’ve really worked with a laser level, and I had the GLL2 going, which was just perfect for such a small space.

    Non productive day. Fought a splitting headache for most of the day that just about laid me out until late afternoon. Seems better now.

    It was demo day on a new deck job…and what a mess it turned out to be.

    I knew the deck was sagging in a specific area due to a lack of support posts (apparently they just forgot one…right in the center of the deck). Anyway…new post and a beam of sorts tied into the adjacent posts, all new stairs, decking and a bit of a refurb on the railing.

    Has anyone seen or used hog fencing for a deck railing? Apparently it’s gaining popularity and the homeowner wants to have it installed. (Picture below )

    we will be using it for the trealasis on a pergola we will be building in a couple weeks. It gives a nice industrial look if that is what you are looking at. Where did you get yours.

    No, but it’s an interesting look. I would check about it meeting code though. I think the code here refers to a ball of a certain size is not allowed to fit through anywhere, and not being able to climb it (as in a child going over the top). If it keeps in a hog though, I would not doubt it’s strength. So to avoid any liability, I would check.

    Interesting @kurtwelkerhomes-com! I have a pergola scheduled for later this summer that will be part of a rose garden. The customer wants the sides to have a trellis, but they don’t want the standard diamond pattern wood stuff. Maybe I’ll suggest this product for that application.

    I haven’t bought it yet, but one of the local yards stocks a brand called “Hog Wild Railing”.

    It should be compliant in my area. The code says the spacing has to be “less than 4 inches” and I’ve never heard of one of the inspectors taking issue with the climbing factor, although it may happen at some point…but I’ll triple check anyway!

    As for the strength, it is made of 6 gauge steel and welded at each intersection, so I’m guessing it will be about bulletproof.

    Will you be putting Gtape on the joist to help them last as long as the new decking?

    Today I finished the trim for the transom and started making 14 shelves to go in the built ins on either side of the fireplace.

    Thanks, @doobie, I should have mentioned that we spun the flail in a drill. Rereading what I wrote it was not clear. It was the best way I could come up with to undercut the floor as much as we needed other than the fingernail method, and I was not fond of that one

    @jponto07
    We used it on a project a couple years ago, just on that one job, on 2 decks outside and even used it on the interior… but this was with galvanized metal posts and angle iron framing around the perimeter. I do see it all over the place now, and it is a clean and slightly industrial or even better “agricultural” look, lol.
    I’d check pricing against the farm supply stores if you’re looking at buying it through a lumber yard. Might be cheaper, but if they’re selling it as deck railing now maybe they include some hardware to make it a little more user friendly for that application.

    Wow, that’s a beautiful job you guys can,
    Interesting choice for a railing.
    Nice, but just interesting.

    That looks great!

    Bender sells the stuff as a deck railing kit, along with metal tracks that are installed along the perimeter to hold the panels in place. Its been a while since I asked about the price, but it was quite a bit cheaper than I expected.

    Nice, I figured there was some sort of innovation to go with it if they were selling it as a legitimate railing now…. Probably looks even cleaner too

    @Boschmanbrian
    one of many interesting choices on that job, how about bright red windows against corrugated galvanized siding on the majority of the house. Some referred to it as a giant chicken coop, some said airplane hangar…to each their own I guess. The small section that you see in the background was fiber cement in an interesting pattern, that was actually pretty fun.

    That wouldn’t be allowed here at all. The toddler climbing factor is the nono. They don’t even allow horizontal fence boards here although some still do it.

    code says the spacing has to be “less than 4 inches”

    Same over here as well. But unless a permit or complaint is lodged people infract on this as well quite often.

    I had to fix a leaking toilet

    Not a leak, but I bought a new valve and flapper for the toilet upstairs. It’s likely due to be changed anyways and the current one that’s been there now for the last ten years takes forever to fill the tank. Going with another brand (Korky) than Fluidmaster this time recommended by the guy at HD who was helping me earlier this week with my clogged sink dillemas. I’m also gonna change the shut off to a ball valve type.
