I've been using the jumbo nailer from @fascoamerica for most of the season. Hands down I've saved my shoulder and tennis elbow from further damage, aannnddd I've increased some major efficiencies on site. All while improving the quality of our builds and the strength of our connections. The diamond coating on these nails is unreal. Not only does it help drive the nail in with less effort, it also increases holding power. If you do post framing, build LVL beams, or just need a bigger nailer in your life, look up the jumbo from fasco. It's pretty amazing. .

As you can see from the video, and if you watch till the end, it took me more time and effort to hand clean out the loose sand and dirt in the bottom then it did to auger the entire hole.

These three holes will be porch support piers. The @kubotausa svl90 didnt even break a sweat!.

@jimmydiresta this is why your site surprised me so much. I'm used to digging something like this!

Check out this building process being documented with the @phaze.app . Put a few minutes of time into every step of the process to take a couple pics, and it will create you some awesome content for your feed. What's your guys thoughts? Is it worth it? What do you think about the app, and who is using it? .

Yesterday I showed you how we do our bottom and sides when we trim a windows for steel. The big question I got....was how do we trim the top. In this video I do a quick overview on how it works. I know someone is going to grill me for not mitering the tops.....well, when you show me a video on it, I'd love to learn. The way we do our top piece is crucial to keep water away from the window and not come in at the top along that mitered joint. Like I said....if someone has a great fix for that I'm all ears!
.
.
On a side note...the clipped corners on the trim are crucial for getting it up in the steel. .

One of the most gratifying parts of our builds, and satisfying to watch.....installing ceiling. It's a lot of hard work, and all of its above your head, but when it's done, it really defines the space. This 56x60 ceiling took us just over 3 hours and it turned out amazing. Straight crisp lines of course! Once again #JLG megadeck for the win. That lift makes you feel like you are working on the ground. Our entire set of ceiling materials get loaded up and taken up to the ceiling with us. We never have to get out unless its @caseysgenstore doughnut break compliments of @g_haas93 .

Just about the time the sun set, the wind calmed and all I wanted to do was lay roof sheets. However, we put in a full day, and accomplished a lot of work that had to be done regardless so I feel good. Tomorrow, weather permitting, we should be set up to lay a ton of roof! .

Not going to lie... this is pretty darn cool! @kevinoconnortoh and I met while I was at @jimmydiresta farmhouse prepping his building site for the makers space this August. Besides the fact that he has been on my TV for the last.... I don’t even know how many years.... he’s a super down to earth guy that can cook some fresh veggies and perfect steak on the grill.... even if he does drink @budlight Instead of @buschlightusa 😉
.
.
Whats so amazing is because of IG and this community, Kevin sends me this picture of him wearing my @beachandbarn collab hat in front of the @asktoh Trailer. Something only made possible by the community we’ve created on social media. These days, the world has become so small, and this picture proves that you can be a small town guy, building barns, in the middle of rural Illinois, and still have a chance to make a difference. .
.
This inspires me greatly to continue to share the story, provide any knowledge I have for others, and in general, keep growing as a builder! Thanks Kevin, it means a lot!! Make sure you go over and give him a follow. He takes some amazing pics when he’s out and about for the @thisoldhouse show!

I love the transformation that each step in the building process makes! Just a couple days of work and we go from housewrap.... to ready to paint! The clean lines and overall finished look that this #lpsmartside gives is very satisfying!
It's Friday people! Not a day to get through to get to the weekend, it's another day to do your absolute best and do something you will be proud of later! .

You can see here in this video, everyone is firing on all cylinders trying to make the most of the end of the day. Side wall getting screwed off, and wainscot being installed. The hard work is in the prep...the install is the easy fun part. .

This was all in the last 30 minutes of the day if not less

My Saturdays have been filled lately helping my dads project move along with jobs that aren't typical of my crew. I find it more efficient and even more enjoyable to just go out there on a Saturday morning and my dad and I check a project off the list. Last weekend it was the @warmboard subfloor over top his basement. For a more in depth video of this process check out my @youtube channel. Will be posting it soon. .
.
This subfloor is engineered and ready to accept your #pex tubing as soon as you lay it. It's 1 1/8" thick and sturdy and as a concrete floor. .

#tipsandtrickstuesday This simple tips and tricks Tuesday brought to you by @g_haas93. We're talking about popping bands....but not around those 100s! He's been using this trick since he was a little boy. If you didn't know....now you know. I challenge everyone to commit themselves to sharing tips and tricks of their trade. Small or large, you never know who you might effect! Someone's life might get a little easier! .
.
.
Also, side note, always be aware of your wood pile. Make sure it doesn't fall over on top of you when you cut the bands. Make sure not to stand directly behind the band as well so you don't get hit with it and potentially get cut

Sometimes it's hard to believe or even remember all the events or things we cram into a week. If you are looking for a great way to put it all into a single video with ease, check out the #quick app from @gopro. Pretty slick, easy to use, and they keep updating and adding new music you can add. .

The struggle with post frame construction sometimes is using high quality materials when it comes to finishing the interiors. Even if we want to do our best and feel like we are building million dollar homes, the truth is....this is still a garage or a barn/Shop. So we use economical finishes, but try to execute them at a high level. .
.
The @dewalttough 15ga trim nailer is perfect for this work. It keeps me cordless around my large sites, will shoot trim all day on a single battery, feels great in your hands, and most importantly, performs well installing trims. Gasless, cordless nailers are the future!

Almost wrapped up this week. It would have been nice for sure, but my thoughts are that you can start a job super strong, but if you don't end it even stronger, that's how you will be remembered. People always ask me for advice when starting a new business or going out on their own for the first time. I'd say one of the most important things to remember, especially on bigger jobs, don't get in a hurry to wrap up and get on to the next one. Take as long as it takes, make things right, and don't worry about profit. Profit can be made down the road when you've honed your craft and figured it all out. In the beginning, being the best you can be is much more important. .

@everwin_official sent out this siding nailer for me to try out and give me their opinion on a while back. Finally have a ton of 3/4 BCX plywood to install inside the shop on our current project. Compared to the old coil framer we used to use, this is like heaven. It's pretty light weight, shoots a pretty clean hole, and has a nice small tip that I can place fairly precise. Another cool feature is shooting it in bump mode or single fire by just holding down the trigger differently. Time will tell if it is durable enough to last! Anyone else tried this brand? They have been manufacturing nailers for a long time in told, however just recently branded their own. .

Something I'm continually asked to see. Hope this video helps. I know this isn't the only way to do it, and I've been told I should have tucked the ridge cap under the upper roof steel. Honestly I don't agree with that. The way the ridge has a profile to it, it just wouldn't have looked good nor sealed well in my opinion. The way I have done it, the water can come down, hit the valley pan and run to a side and off the roof. Thoughts? Let me know

The cupola is a classic symbol of a barn, but it also helps dress up any building, including this post frame residential home we've been working on. We are currently using #plyco brand cupolas. They sell a really heavy duty base and well designed roof/wall combination that doesn't leave wondering if it will be gone after the first use wind storm. .

Everyone loves a good auger digging video. How about a video digging holes in New York for a future maker Mecca? It sure looks a ton easier in time lapse then it felt like in real time. If you watch closely you can see big rocks come up out of the auger flighting. .

Here's what I was shooting in my earlier pic. My wife's new @canonusa T5i is a huge leap up in quality over my @apple.stores #iphone 6s. All I did was play a little bit with brightness and contrast. Maybe darken the shadows a little bit. Top 5 favorite builds of all time. Almost fake looking it's so crisp. Next time I come by I think a drone shot with this new landscaping will be needed. .

#sundayfunday drive to get school supplies with the family. I knew customer had concrete done on this job so I wanted to stop by and get some final shots. Looks like there will be some nice landscaping to come back and get even better pics of. Thanks to my wife for snapping this pic @principal_in_boots

This week was a good example of what it means to be a contractor. After months of anxiety knowing that Jimmy Diresta's project was coming up, we finally started digging in his site. Man were my fears realized. After not being able to dig more than a couple feet in the first holes, I internally thought it was going to be impossible and we'd have to rethink what to do. However we kept at it, and after 12 hrs of digging through horrible conditions (at least horrible for what we are used too) we did it. .
.
The best part was when @jimmydiresta got home that day and couldn't believe it. The smile on his face, and the smile on all my customers faces, are what makes it all worth it. Being a contractor and building people's dreams, is the most empowering, inspiring, and all around best job a person could ask for. #doitforthem

The process of setting brackets. The most crucial part of the entire build. Everything needs to be correct! Building needs to be laid out square, the measurements all need to be accurate, and every post bracket needs to be installed level and at the correct place. Once this part of the process is done.....it's all downhill. Building is the fun and easy part. .

Guess I didn't get the arms crossed memo. It was a great couple days digging in the piers and setting brackets for @jimmydiresta future maker space. Not only did things go well and we are ready to start construction, but we were also able to hang out, talk shop, and watch the people over at #askthisoldhouse shoot an upcoming episode with Jimmy. It was great meeting everyone including @kevinoconnortoh, even if he isn't a @buschlightusa guy. Now I'm back home and ready to get back at it. Once we wrap up our current projects, we will be back out to really give Jimmy something to be happy about. .

Not really sure how I should caption this? I stepped back to snap a pic of the concrete process and didn't even see @jimmydiresta and @kevinoconnortoh standing there watching. I was so in the moment like usual. I've yet to really document or show this process due to the hurry up and get it done before the concrete gets too firm mentality. This will be a great memory for me. Hopefully the first of many "holy crap" moments in life. .

Progress drone video. We installed most of the upper sections wall steel today. Waiting for some valley closures to finish up the lower section of roof...should be tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow is another visually appealing day, then we wait for Windows in the residential side.

PLEASE READ. this post isn't just about roofing, although I think this is a cool video. I am asked daily, how in the heck do you find time to work, create content, run a business, be a family man, etc. Honestly, it's all about prioritizing your time. If you watch closely, I take time to fly my drone in the middle of roofing, but you don't see the process stop or slow down at all. I try to maximize every second of my day from the time I wake up, usually 5:30, to the time I go to bed, 11:00. This morning when I woke up, I made coffee, went into my office, downloaded the @gopro footage and edited out the boring ends of the video. Then I uploaded it to IG. The biggest thing I always try to remember is the content I'm creating is not for me. I live it daily. I'm creating content that might help inspire a young person, teach an old dog a new trick, or just be plain entertainment. Sorry for the long post. I just wanted to address the question I get all the time. Keep them coming!!

Whenever I can, I try to create as much of a factory assembly line as possible on site. If there is a repetitious task that can be batched or performed in one single location then spread out across the job, I'm always trying to think like a factory floor. I ran production for a local factory out of college for just over a year, and I think it gave me a better understanding of efficiencies and how small time savings here and there add up to larger time savings by the end of the project. .
.
In this video I am pre drilling holes and setting 60d nails into all of our overhang tails that are mounted on our trusses. I can promise the amount of time saved here on the ground vs up in the lift is huge.

@rrbuildings - Not a new tool by any means. I've seen these around, but what's awesome is Chad @cgiese saw our building methods and knew that this tool would come in handy and really drive efficiencies up on site over a traditional hammer tacker that we usually use. The automatic mode and fully adjustable trigger is pretty sweet. .
.
@fascoamerica makes some extremely well made, durable, and long lasting pneumatic guns. I can't wait till they turn these nailers into cordless!! While I patiently wait for that, I plan on using this to provide a better quality job for my customer, and increase profits by reducing installation time. I can handle that. .

We were absolutely murdered by today's heat, but still managed to get through the day and wrap up the roof frame. Tomorrow we start finishing the misc framing in preparation for steel delivery Friday morning. I love the Midwest, but holy cow, when the sun is out, humidity is high, and you are busting your tail, you gotta keep hydrated and pay attention to your body. I was not prepared for today with cold water or air conditioning in my work trailer, but we got it done. .

I know I know. Most guys are going to know what a story pole is. Probably one of the oldest and most efficient tricks in the book when it comes to repetitive marking. But I had many questions from my previous video about one. We use it on every job to ensure consistent marks across our entire project. As long as we get an accurate reading from our laser....the rest will be perfect 👌🏻

When your customer snaps this epic sunset pic..... you have to post it. His words were.... thought you might like the lines!! I guess he knows me quite well. Thanks for the pic @joemeyers75! Honored to be trusted with your future home build. .

@rrbuildings - I've been using the jumbo nailer from @fascoamerica for most of the season. Hands down I've saved my shoulder and tennis elbow from further damage, aannnddd I've increased some major efficiencies on site. All while improving the quality of our builds and the strength of our connections. The diamond coating on these nails is unreal. Not only does it help drive the nail in with less effort, it also increases holding power. If you do post framing, build LVL beams, or just need a bigger nailer in your life, look up the jumbo from fasco. It's pretty amazing. .

Part two! .
I get the same questions all the time. Why not answer them in one video. Next I hope to get longer videos up on my YouTube. If you aren't following along and want to learn, I'd appreciate you jumping over to @youtube and giving me a sub. That way you won't miss any of our extended content. Thanks for the support.

Something that seems so simple for me, now that we've been doing this for about 5 years, still might be a little confusing. I've touched on this many times, but if I need to go into much more depth, or there is a need for more lengthy explanation, DM me. If that doesn't work it will inspire me to make a more in depth video for YouTube. If you aren't already, go head on over to @youtube and subscribe if you'd like so you won't miss my extended content that won't fit on IG. .

Went up in the air with my father-in-law this morning to check on the farm fields and flew over a few of my recent sheds. I'm still amazed at the size of this one compared to the three big buildings next to it. 92'x256' foot print. That's a lot of water shed. What a great project to be able to build. Great customers too. If anyone needs a golf cart....this is where you buy it @msk_golf_cars .

Quick final fly around at this 36'x48' horse pasture run-in/hay storage shed. If you'd like to see the entire process, start to finish, check out my YouTube channel. I just posted a full video. Feel free to leave me a comment. Tell me what you liked, didn't like, or what I could improve on. I'm learning more every time I do one of these. Link to my YouTube channel is in my profile. .

36'x48' horse pasture run-in/hay storage just wrapped up. It doesn't get much more simple than this, but if anything, it makes me want to do even better to help the building stand out. Nothing more classic than red and white on a barn. I never get tired of that combo. .

Right before one of today's storms rolled through. There was an awesome front coming with it and I had to take the mavic up of course. One really great perk to working in the country..... you see storms rolling in with plenty of time to pick up tools.... usually!
