Quick Tutorial on installing j-channel around a window. More than one way to skin a cat.... what do you guys think? I'm a fan of a miter anytime you can, but I don't like a straight 45 on most metal trims. .

#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

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. .

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. .

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. .

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. .

Holes are dug!! What has been a huge stressor for the last three months, is finally over. I've been so worried just not knowing what conditions would be like in New York versus Illinois. Well it was what I expected. A ton of hand digging and removing rocks. Good news is, its dug in and in the morning we will pour concrete. .

We finally made it. Future site of @jimmydiresta maker shop. It's been a long process of getting everything lined up, but this week we will get the site ready for a building to be constructed. Things are definitely a little different than back home. Rocks everywhere and lots of trees. It's not like back home. I'd say, this will only make it more memorable. .
