re: Is there any benefit to buying a home vs building or vice versa? - T4 on 6/19/18 at 5:25 pm
I started #245 and #246 this week, been building for 13 years and the last 24 months, especially the last 15 months have been the least profitable ever. Material prices are insane right now across the board with framing materials leading the field in regard to increases. 2,150 sf heated French cou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/11/18 at 3:23 pm
The braces are built and spaced correctly. They should have a continuous top plate attached to the bottom of the rafters with the joints of the plate breaking on a rafter. There should be another 2x4 at minimum nailed to the top edge of that plate perpendicular to the plate and then it should have...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/11/18 at 3:20 pm
They can be removed because they will be replaced by the knee walls that act as your walls. A 2x6 rafter on 16" spacing will span 12'11". Knowing this and guessing your roof pitch you should have a rafter length of around 18'6" give or take a few inches. This means that the rafter would have to b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/11/18 at 2:30 pm
I would need the width of the opening as well as the span of the two rooms combined that would be supported by the beam. If the ceiling joists of the room on each side of the beam run perpindicular to the beam then the beam would be load bearing. If the ceiling joists run parallel to the beam then...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/11/18 at 1:25 pm
I just looked at the picture closer on my computer instead of my phone. What I thought was a beam at 1/4 span is actually a 2x4 nailed to the top of the joists. I can't tell what size the midspan beam is but if it is sized correctly the 13' span is more than the allowable span for a 2x8 spaced at ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/11/18 at 11:25 am
From what I see in the picture there looks to be a beam at the midspan of the garage as well as 1/4 span. This makes me assume that there is a beam on the insulation side of the midspan beam as well. If this is the case the span of your joist is calculated from wall to beam and from beam to beam. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/10/18 at 9:22 pm
I own a framing subcontracting operation that frames 600k feet per year on top of being a liscenced general contractor, I do believe that I know what I'm talking about. We frame everything from houses to very large 1,2,3, and 4 story wood frame commercial buildings that are inspected by structural ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Beam install cost - T4 on 4/10/18 at 4:35 pm
There is no need for a beam to be installed under the vertical knee walls as long as your joists are sized and spaced correctly along with the beam at midspan. Typically you will have a laminated beam installed midspan and recessed down into the garage ceiling in order for the top of the beam to be...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
Starting from scratch on tackle. - T4 on 3/30/18 at 4:41 pm
I'm a big hunter but haven't been hardcore into fishing since I was a kid. I've recently bought a fishing yak and am wanting to get set up right for fishing. I'm covered on rods and reels but have a pretty pitiful collection of tackle. I'm wanting to just start from scratch and buy all new stuff ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)
