Forklift misfortune

I'm sitting here trying to figure out just how this went down. This is one of those things that are so awesome you can't help but share it. Texting and forklift operating?

Garage Rot

3 / 13


Rot repair and termites, not something everyone wants to deal with. That's the way it goes sometimes, and for this small garage at least it was a small patch rather than a huge structural ordeal. I was able to remove the rotten framing and replaced it with new studs with the help of my new @dewalttough 20v miter saw.  With some fresh doors this garage looks, and will hold up, like new.

Thanks, insulation guy. Insulator hulk smashes his way through the attic. Taper isn't going to be able to fix it this time!

Always love opening up a wall to find hidden surprises. Looks like I have some rot repair to do.

Why won't my tub drain?

PSA: Steel drain lines can get very plugged up from buildups of rust and other residual matter.

Finished art project. It's abstract. You probably wouldn't understand.

(WOW that carried on for some time. Off brand spray foam cans might just result in something like this... I guess you get what you pay for...)

It's common to find something of interest when you open up a wall. But not all finds are positive!
