We Got to use @mica_revolution for the first time today👍 And it went great, can't believe how simple the process was. What the products is is Mica(like the Rock) cut into Paper thin sheets. Using the recommended glue, the sheets of Mica are glued in place. By tearing the sheets in random patterns you can overlap them. By doing so the Mica becomes seamless. Sand off the floppy pieces and you're done. Very cool product for accent walls or in domes, Coffers etc. We're definitely looking forward to the next job we get to use this on👊. Also who caught the RC T-Square??😂

I’ve found the best things start w/ a sketch. That special moment when time stops, you’re not distracted and your thoughts flow from your head through the pencil to paper and your vision comes to life. •
The rumors are true!!! Let the adventure begin and this sketch from a couple yrs back come to life. •
Introducing, @vintagebuilders! After 10+ years of working, building & pouring my passion into other people’s companies, it’s time for me to run my own again. •
THANK YOU for everyone’s support & checking in during my down time.
I’m excited to take u on the journey of starting this company, building a new brand and all the up’s & down’s along the way. •
W/ this change I plan to devote more time to @the.moderncraftsman turning plans & ideas @trghomeconcepts, @nsbuilders & I have been bouncing around into reality!!!!

I hope you follow along and I look forward to getting back in the saddle again posting here and on @vintagebuilders & brining back the stories!!!!

Chris's review over at @toolmagazine made me want to share my experience.  Last July I decided to try out the DeWalt XP 25' tapes.  I bought 2 of them and both of them had this weird issue where they would just roll over as they extended.  I showed that in my stories and got quite a bit of feedback. . .

Quite a few had this problem, but quite a few didn't.  So I've used 3 tapes since those initial two and none of them have this problem.  I'm not sure what the deal is.  I like that the end has huge "wings" or "ears". It allows me too hook from farther away. I can also pick up my siding nailer from the ground when it falls.  I should shoot video of that. . .

This is POV footage from last week.  In case you are worried that I'm risking death, I'm not.  Go check out Chris's review btdubbs. . .

Today I had a kitchen install. One day. Nothing glamorous like @jchcabinets work. Just basic stock cabinetry from a store.

Here’s the thing. Aside from some potential for spectacular scribe work or crown molding? The guts of this install are on par with Jon’s work...

The cabinets need to be installed level and square and in plane and at the correct elevations. Finding the high point is the place to start. Using a cleat to aid your upper install. Using a spacer to make sure your cooktop opening stays correct during counter top template....

All of these things and more are just as necessary on a 2k kitchen as they are on an 80k kitchen.

Heck, it might be more difficult on this one cause every cabinet is slapped together and made of particle board.

My hats off to all of you who recognize the attention to detail on any job, big or small.

Let’s go behind the scenes..... A common question asked; what are the top (5) things u need to start your company tomorrow? Beyond drive & vision here’s the top (5) that come to mind & I used: • Write a biz plan. Spell out everything that’s bouncing around in your head. Dig into the numbers, project projections duration and values, wages, schedule, profit margin projections, overhead, etc. *I ran through the calcs upside down, backwards, reverse & inside out. •
• Interview a Accountant/ Bookkeeper
*know the rates & fees, schedule check-in monthly to quarterly •
• Interview an Attorney
*file for LLC or Inc. Know rates and have them on a retainer
• Interview Insurance Agent
*understand your rates, premium and audit info, timing, requirements. *** the above items are critical to u staying focused on the projects once u get started. Otherwise you’re reacting and the result will be lost of time, money & drive for the real fun stuff. • •BRANDING find a company that specializes in turning your vision into something crisp, clean and PRO. It than turns into an extension of you!!!! I turned to @slash.la to take my ideas home.
Check out where we are in the branding at the moment. Which is your fav??!!

Our framers are now setting the floor trusses to begin the second floor framing. This 12,000 SF Custom is moving right along! Upcoming finishes soon by @einteriors.design @coryrblack

An important thing to remember when laying out stair treads, is to find out your total length from first nosing to last nosing and divide it out equally with dividers or a set of trammels. Just because your run is a nice easy number like 11 doesn't mean you can just keep marking off at 11 on your tape or square because if you are off even a minute amount you can amass an accumulation of error pretty quickly.

Footings for some lally colums.... 20"x 20"x 16"deep. Rebar enforced. This particular home inspector wanted them cemented in so 2 stage poor. I'll let them setup and install the colums, then poor the the top few inches to lock them in. House was built in the 1800s. Not the easiest of jobs but they can't all be cream puffs! #cementfooting #basementfootings #cement #quickcrete #concretefooting #concretebase #rebar #supportcolumns #1800s #oldhouse #beamsupports #historicalhomes #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #handdigging #lallycolumn #mixingcement #concrete #concretecutting

Stopped by Historic HouseParts this evening. 3 floors and a huge warehouse of things even Amazon Prime can’t get you. Found some one-of-a-kind pocket door hardware and duct registers that will fit right in at our West St project

Some precise excavation going on at my new project. #dontankersleyandco #finehomebuilding

#WynnewoodBaths 2 of 2 | making progress on the hall bath today by installing the Wedi board and getting a final coat of compound on. Primer and tile are up next 💪. Where’s the tub spout? Don’t worry about it 😜

Bathroom complete! Here’s a few before and after pics. We’re still waiting on the custom frameless shower door, but you get the idea.

Lots of upgrades here. 74”x40” shower, dual individually controlled shower heads, recessed cans, mini cans in the niche, built up crown, footrest for shaving, wainscoting with inlaid tile, and more. This thing is a killer! Check out my Facebook post for more pics and info!

When a long time, repeat customer calls and asks if we can you try to figure out why their toilet is rocking, of course I say yes! This bath was remodeled at the same time her other bath was 7 years ago, and based on other issues we have fixed at this home I was afraid I already knew the answer. Behold, shotty work! I’m sorry but when a customer pays you to renovate their bathroom(s) and you do work like this, to me you are considered a thief and a hack. The closet flange is sitting an inch and a half below the finished floor and there is very little tile/ substrate to support the toilet. They also used drywall in the shower and nothing is waterproofed.
.
.
.
Why are there so many contractors who just don’t care?? Why do I hear horror stories from almost every customer about contractors past?? It makes me lose sleep at night, and not because these are the crooks we are competing against, but because we morally could not, would not and do not do subpar work. We don’t even think about cutting corners. If it takes us longer to complete a project than I budgeted for that is my issue to deal with and should not result in a half hearted end result for you the paying customer! .
.
.
.
At the end of the day, we will probably not be the lowest estimate you receive and there is good reason for that. In this industry, more so than most; you get what you pay for. We strive for quality and perfection in every job both big and small. This is a family owned business and our name is on it. Our name is our reputation and without a good reputation we have nothing! We are modern day craftsmen with skill and talent who can design and build most anything you dream up. Your project is not just another day on our calendar it is our passion, our name and our livelihood. .

How much do you love this powder room peek?! ❤️🌿

here is a closeup of the joinery on the boxes @cottingham.ltd cnc’d for us. blind dados, shelf pin hole borings, accurate/consistent box parts, and 3/4” construction including backs. jeremy is someone i met directly through instagram. another younger guy pushing himself and his employees to master their craft, striving to specialize, refusing to deliver less than his full potential, pushing the limits of what we can do as tradesmen, not accepting “stock” or “run-of-the-mill” as an option, and a man after my own heart who will rip apart/trash/redo anything he does that isn’t up to his standards. go check out his work and watch what he is doing. maybe he’ll remember you when he makes it big time. thanks again jeremy, and thank you for being someone who is pushing the craft, delivering quality, and not sacrificing values or standards to make a buck. #finehomebuilding #trghomeconcepts #quality #value #efficiency #smallbusiness #bluecollar #carpenter #contractor #builder #remodeler #medford #newjersey #keepcraftalive #tradesman #craftsman #logo #brand #cottingham #woodmetal #bigdaddykane #moderncraftsman

Stayed after work to practice the #twohammerchallenge2 I was taught not to try and orient nails eg heads all facing one way, but rather pull out a handful and start nailing. You have to develop a rhythm that allows you to flip the nails as you swing.  The framer, Davey, who taught me was really fast.  Now we only go through one bucket of 16d sinkers a year.  Guns guns guns! . .

Kyle has the two hammer thing down to about 14 seconds.  I'm horrible doing it that way and am around 17 seconds. . .

Another kitchen coming taking shape.

I was looking through my panoramic folder and I found these from last spring. This cedar deck is probably my favorite deck I’ve done to days
This was before installing the all white @trexcompany railings. The trim and lattice were all @azekbuildingproducts

We unwrapped an early Christmas present today. I love pulling masking! The mantle is going to be stained to compliment the flooring next. I am liking the rustic shiplap look next to the more metallic themed tile. ------

Installed a new toilet for an old co-worker (my other profession). This is a @kohlerco toilet with a sensor on top of the tank. No more holding down the lever to flush. Pretty impressed for a one piece toilet and leverless.... Thoughts?

Well we got the entertainment center/book case installed ready for the painters..

Had to get creative framing this wall alone.

Each of these studs is an 1/8" to a 1/16" off from each other so I couldn't build the wall and raise it into place. I used the king stud for the doorway to get my height for each of my other studs. I put up studs every 32"-48" with temporary bracing leveling them off the height of the king stud. Once enough studs were up to hold my top plate I lined it up with my layout marks, and then put diagonal bracing to sturdy it up. I filled in the trimmers,headers and other studs to finish it off.
Any tips to speed up the process for remodel framing on an unlevel bottom plate ? @mrjfink @thekeystonecarpenter @gosselinkfinecarpentry

Got to love this.
Changing up from the ordinary white railings really does a new deck well like this!!!!👊

Today we started getting fascias up, the laser really simplifies some parts of this assembly.

This is an outdoor fireplace at an old project. The Masons really knocked it out with this one. I really like the look of the brick and stone firebox. .

Whats your favourite type of finishing?
We love to jazz up those walls and ceilings. The possibilities of design are endless. Take a look at this dining room area with some simple board and batten. .

What an awesome powder room. I Installed this reclaimed built-in a few months ago. I tied it into the horizontal v-groove wainscotting and capped it off with our favorite beaded cove. I couldn't fit it all the the picture but the room has a vaulted beadboard ceiling with a sun tunnel skylight.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” ~ Ben Franklin
DISCLAIMER! This is not a picture of a project we supplied. This is however an opportunity to show & tell the other side of the “Premium Douglas Fir” lumber story that you may have seen us post here on IG. This lumber was purchased by a homeowner that insisted that they could get a better price on their framing order from another supplier. When questions aren’t asked and there is not an open communication with your lumber sales rep, they won’t give you the full story about what species or grade of “lumber” they are quoting. Sure, we could supply you with a cheaper grade at a cheaper price, but we understand how shipping this poor quality lumber will impact every trade that follows … the extra time spent by the drywall installer, the finish carpenter, the GC who will have to come back when the walls are sagging and the tape is falling off… it’s a butterfly effect that we don’t want to be a part of. We are committed to supplying you, our partners, with premium Douglas Fir framing lumber that has square edges, minimal wane and is straight & true… this stack wouldn’t pass the test.

Heating element sunk into a tub side window sill.

jeremy over at @cottingham.ltd offered to cnc our cabinet box parts for our latest build. when he first approached me, i was skeptical as to how much time it would actually save us. not only did it save us a ton of time breaking down the parts, but the assembly times were cut way down as well. not to mention the accuracy simply cannot be beaten. if you need casework broken down and laid out for you reach out to him. it was an absolute pleasure. also, give him a follow. his work and shop are top notch. #finehomebuilding #trghomeconcepts #quality #value #efficiency #smallbusiness #bluecollar #carpenter #contractor #builder #remodeler #medford #newjersey #keepcraftalive #tradesman #craftsman #logo #brand #cottingham #woodmetal #bigdaddykane #moderncraftsman

Who else does this?? I would never suggest this to anyone, this is how I get a few more degrees out of my miter saw on stock that's not flat. Be sure to hold your piece firmly if you ever try this. Normally you would just flip it over and hit it from the back on the other side of the saw because it goes to 60 degrees but with stock that's not flat it would require a shim and a little more time. This is quicker and easier to me.
