Wind was gusting to 40 mph yesterday...I knew it was just a matter of time before the porta-potty would go down. Jobsite was a real mess too...... melting snow and ice changing the ground into mud.
We have eight more houses being framed up....but none are ready for finish work yet. Going to be another very busy year!

New construction is nice....
I am drawing and figuring how to rework some basement stairs in an old Marblehead house. Avg 10" rise with 7-7.5" runs..... Approx 70x 70" totals, which includes the winder.... No way I have code headroom.... Sucks. I figure it is close to 56 degrees currently. Cutting back the top landing 7" (accounted for in the total run) should allow me to get close to 45 degrees, I hope.
7.78" rise 9x
8.75" run 8x
That look right to you RMarsh?

Still sucks. Not gonna be cheap, especially considering limitations on what they can get out of it. But ten inch rise will kill someone eventually. Butt ugly space too.....

Our basement stairs used to be 9/7. It was like being on a ship. The drunks that did the addition before we owned the house clearly just left a hole in the floor, pulled up the ladder and did what they could. Deadly...

That will be a big improvement Ross. In most old houses basement stairs were considered service entrances or access and not built to same standards. Check out this link ....its a calculator app that I use for triangles (stairs). Using your rise and run would give you 42 degrees. Set to side angle side with angle set to 90

Just started a stairway on another new home. This house will be for sale with a price upwards of $700,000. Crazy amount of money!!!
I built my own home back in 77' for a total cost of $25,000 on a 1 1/2 acre lot that I paid $6,700 for! I think I was making less than $5 an hour though.

When I started working as a carpenter my boss was selling 2 story colonials on 3/4 acre lots for $39,900! Seemed like a lot of money at the time!?

My first job at 16 yrs. old was working at a sawmill... early 70's... my take home for 40 hrs was $44. Boss was a miserable pr*** too.
In 73' I was getting $2.50 framing condos on the cape.
By 77' got up to almost $5. A lot of hard work went into getting better at my job, a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

Stairway progress and kitchen cabinets going in. The cabinets in the foreground, will form an angled peninsula. I'm going to build a 40" high wall on the backside of them to support a bar height granite top.

Angled peninsula in progress....electrician will install 2 receptacles in the backsplash. The halfwall will support a granite top with a 12" overhang for bar stool seating.

Newel posts installed. The starting tread and riser are left unfastened until I am ready to install the newels. The tenon is glued, screwed and blocked to the stair framing.

Finishing up the stair railings. No other workers on site for the last few days helps a lot.

Thanks.....The boat is ready to go...the weather looks to be improving...so might be getting out there this coming week.
You have an Onslow Bay right?..Serious fishing machine!! See you out there soon.

Next house wont be ready for finish for a week or so. Boss asked me to build some Lantern Posts, seven in all, for some houses we are building in Dover. Lantern fixture will be mounted on top. They are 7' tall, made of all PVC.
Still need to make bases and caps for these. Personally not my taste....but it keeps me busy in my (very cluttered) shop.

They are going to need a pretty big lantern fixture on top of these to look proportional. The pvc is easy to work with. Nice to know these wont be rotting away like wood does.
Tops are removable to do electrical connections.

Really?

A good friend who builds custom kitchens from scratch...just told me that this factory cherry kitchen that I installed just a few years ago, was rejected by the new owners of the home. He removed all of it and installed his new custom job of $30,000 worth of just the cabinets.
Painted cabinets... the new norm ....for now.
I just think it was a shame. He said he would send me a few pics of the new one.

We painted our cabinets (which are all custom made) 20 years ago. Realtor told us we have a "traditional Frech Country kitchen". I painted them to brighten the kitchen.

No boat, back in the suds.
