#tbt2014 We love to frame beautiful homes and it's nice when we also get to do all the siding and exterior carpentry on them too. Gives you a bigger sense of accomplishment as you pull out of the driveway.
Also I can't for the love of God understand why these days we see more jobs where the siding is just applied mindlessly ,not lined up with window tops and with other exterior details in mind. It's just frustrating to see bad finish on something you've put so much work and thought into.

I actually think cutting my irregular hip with backing bevels makes it easier to do a precise fit, also that way works better for us as I prefer to do a bevel cut on my sub fascia so it is easy to tell if it's on the money 👌

Floor removed and two flights of stairs and a landing added on our recent remodel project. The landing wraps around a big window and the opened up space is crowned by recessed ceiling that will house a fake skylight.

14" LVL stringers are hung on HUS hangers and 1" Advantech, the top flight of stairs is supported by angled steel beam bolted onto side stringer. Feels rock solid!!!

It is a feeling hard to explain to those who are not in trades when you calculate and cut those LVL ridge and hip beams on the ground and they fit like a glove. We love it!
And yes, those are double 9" LVL sub fascia!

Garage framing even though pretty straightforward at first sight was pretty challenging with the way structural components work here. 14' walls with 2x12 ceiling joists spanning across over 20' that cantilever on both sides to catch the 2x12 rafters that are fastened to the joists with 8 lags and sit with their birds mouth notches on the plate on top of the joist. At mid span there is a plate on top of the Advantech plywood that is secured both to the joist and the rafters with 2x6 that create sort of truss system. More pics of this structure to follow. .

A throwback to a few years ago when we did this beautiful IPE deck with AZEK skirt and a hidden door that blends right into it.

Anatomy of the trim work on our current project. The challenging part was to end up with the bottom of our crown molding profile at the right brick joint of the existing building brick detail as it is related to the keystone detail of the windows below. ( I will have to zoom in on that in my next post)
Also the brick will be tucked in behind the crown molding. According to the trim detail and of course to make life a little easier for the mason we had to come up with a way of making the detail independent of the brick wall, so that the brick could go right against it and follow it as a reference straight line.#shevconinc #qualityframing #qualitytrim #mutules#customhomes#exteriorcarpentersofig
It sure is nice when everything is dead on and the trim works out perfect! So we like to make sure it stays that way, so all the joints are glued with pvc glue and tightened up with GRK trim screws. The flat runs we treat with subfloor glue to prevent extreme expansion/contraction.

One of the additions we framed a few years ago with a pretty interesting structural framing. The 6x6 posts on all four corners go all the way up continuos from slab to the roof supporting the double LVL eves.

The elevator shaft we framed in on our current job. The wall on the video/ picture features strong backs assembled with engineered lumber glued and screwed, that will carry the tracks of the elevator.#shevconinc #qualityframing #customhomes #elevatorshaft #remodel
The sub fascia was exposed to some rain and really high temperatures before we got to installing trim, so an extra touch is needed to smooth it out a little.

Details matter! Straight and consistent sub fascia makes for nice and straight trim.

Making sure the plates are perfectly square and level makes the rest of the framing go much smoother.

Arched window openings with radius roofs and some more misc framing pictures over at one of the houses we framed. We try to make sure all the lines are nice and crisp to make as little room for deviation as possible for the sheet rock and plaster, they seem to appreciate it.
