If you need to roll a lawnmower or quad through the opening, make sure you account for that in your design. Weekend Warriors Home Improvement Show — Built by Parr Lumber is hosted by two of the best and most energetic Parr employees you're ever going to meet! This week Tony and Corey talk about Spring cleaning and Corey's restoration of his kitchen that was flooded.
This week Tony and Corey are talking about demolition vs deconstruction with home projects.
This week Tony and Corey are chatting with Doug Laphine from Skylift Hardware about the Roof Riser. Here we are with a site purchased, planning permission granted and our commencement notice sent to the Local Authority and the two week notice period elapsed. When we looked through the requirements for the various BER ratings we picked an A-3 rating as been achievable. As I stated in the “About Us” section, I’m from a building family and have building and carpentry (rough carpentry) skills that could be of use. I put together a very basic pricing package and sent it out with the drawings to some experienced traditional builders. I sent the below rough scope of works and again an A-3 specification to both the builder and specialist timber frame company.
Red Deal 6 Panel Internal Doors with stainless steel hinges, black enamel handles and locks. When the prices were returned they again were above my budget, at this point the sleepless nights kicked in.
I knew there had to be an alternative that was within our budget and would provide us with the required quality and BER rating.
At this stage I had decided to rule out the other two types as just not been financially viable. I found this document (ref link below) on the internet published by xtratherm an insulation company. I used these very simple headings to budget the project, I put together a detailed package for the above items highlighted in red as I could not do these specialist works myself so I had to make sure I had enough money to pay these contractors. To achieve my budget I decided to extend the build programme to a two year programme which would give us additional build weekends and holidays and two years of additional income.
So here we go we are going to build a timber frame house and all the timber frames are going to be individually on site and lifted into place.

Simple Solar Homesteading is a Not-For-Profit social and cultural service organization dedicated to producing affordable off-grid housing designs and projects so that everyone everywhere can have a safe and sustainable home. Reminiscent of European timber frame design, the Lyon is a French Country concept that combines stone and curved truss work under one roof. Front porch renovation in Richmond Hill where we stripped the porch floor and steps to bare wood and custom stained and sealed the wood.

All coops thus far have been wood and wire tractors and one lowe's play house that was pre-cut. The trickiest part of this coop building is that we had to get it done in the summer and travel 5 hours each way to work on it. The back was made 8 feet wide to span the floor and studs were placed 16OC (on center) as it is one of the key load bearing walls. There are two 16D coated sinker nails holding the pieces together from the top and bottom ends. This is the frst 3 day weekend we had to drive up to Washington from Oregon to build this coop. Front wall with siding: The structural plywood siding was attached every 6 inches with 2 inch nails all around any edges.
We used a 2x4 to make a frame, a sheet of 16x20 window glass, and glazing points to hold it in. Clear caulk was used on all seams touching red siding, white caulk was used for all seams that were white touching white. The front trim on the edges are 1x4 boards with 1x3 boards are the sides to give the look of 4 inch trim all around the edges.
Fishing line was used to make an invisible escape cord if you accidently closed the door behind yourself while inside.
Two roosts, one at 20 or so inches off the ground and one at about 36 inches from the ground. Feeder: With excess wood from constuction, I figured I'd just build the feeder because they can be expensive to buy.
The feeder is 24 inches tall, 6 inches deep, with a 4 inch tray at the bottom sticking out, that is 3 inches deep, so the birds can easily get the food without hitting their combs. There are 2 gallons of red Olympic exterior paint, 1 gallon of Valspar white exterior paint, 2 gallons of tinted exterior primer, 1 gallon of Sherwin Williams mismatch paint, and 2 gallons of Duramax exterior mismatch paint. Total cost of project before tools and about 2000 total miles of driving to and from the project was $879.23. Inspired by modern architecture, the Tasman is a popular steel frame kit home for medium-sized families and is ideal for wide blocks with limited depth or for blocks where changes in elevation make part of the ground unsuitable for building. One of the most popular features of the Tasman is its open floor plan, which makes the home feel remarkably spacious and allows families to interact while still spreading throughout the home. The Tasman features four bedrooms and is designed to make the master suite as private as possible.

I also have many relations from a building back ground that would work for reasonable rates as they are not very busy at the moment. It would be easy to head to the bank manager at this point and ask for more money, but that would stretch us to far for the rest of our adult lives. Stick framed is a slang term for a timber frame which is built on site instead of in a factory.
I had also came to terms with the conclusion that the only way I was going to build the house for my budget was to actually do the majority of the work myself and save my money for materials and specialist sub-contractors. So we best utalized three day weekends for this project and had to have a VERY good step by step plan. Simmilar to the front, I would have made the framing holes smaller for the windows for a easier fitment.
Then the 30lb roofing felt was installed on top by nailing in every 12 inches or so and overlaping layers 4-6 inches. However, it did take 3-5 passes per shingle to cut through them due to how thick they were.
We got lucky with rain, as it started right after we put on the last coat of paint for this trip, and the large eves kept the siding dry enough to set. The front is 14 inches tall, back is 31.5 inches tall, and they are fastened together with a secton of remaining 2"x4"x14" blocks. We tore down the old coop and the leghorns brooder coop is going to be occupied with the two cochin x silkie bantams.
My SO now has a "permanently" brused hand from hammering which I hope will heal in the next few years.
Only thing not new were the shingles left over from the house and the chickens who were installed. I really think that this is an excellent design, and I will probably be constructing a new coop over the winter.

The home's frontage is 25.4 metres, and its total area under the roof is 241 square metres. The U-shaped dining area separates the formal and casual sections of the living area, and one bench can used as a breakfast bar.
This spacious room opens from the lounge and has a large walk-in wardrobe with an adjoining bathroom.
This not only makes for a pleasant gathering place but also protects the façade of the home and reduces energy costs by diminishing the amount of direct sunlight that enters the home.
During the second hour, they talk about the mistakes homeowners make with pest control, including chicken coops attracting rats, composting, using RAID for ant infestation. During the second hour, Tony and Corey finish their update on Corey's flooding problem and they get into Spring cleaning. Also, they visit with Tim Leitner from Leitner Construction about how he got involved with the tour.
They also chat with Mike Hoosier from Trex about what sets Trex products apart from the competition, recycled products, and Trex elevations. During the second hour, Tony and Corey cover jurisdiction for building your shed, location, door size, using tresses, and metal roofs. During the second hour Tony and Corey continue their visit with Doug from Skylift Hardware. During the second hour, Tony and Corey talk about duct-blaster testing, air quality, HRV units, preconstructions meetings, advance framing, wood vs insulation, and managing moisture.
I also have many other family and friends who would be more than willing to volunteer a few days now and then, even though there not from that back ground. I asked the builders to break there price down as per the below scope and send them back to me within a certain date. We could either reduce our BER rating to the minimum C1 or possibly look at an alternative.
It took a bit to learn how to use a CAD program to find some critical errors in the hand drawn plans.
The walls are all nailed down into the floor every foot or so, and the front and back walls are nailed into each other with the coated sinkers. This increased lead time to construction, but saved a TON of time of needing to tape off and paint unprimed and painted trim pices from the walls.


Tired and exaused from busy weekends we were tired of working on the coop but had to finish. The little wood bits are 14 inches long so chickens can turn around easily on the roosts and keeps poop off the shelf brackets. As a side note about 1.5 bags of shavings (15 expanded cubic feet) were put in the bottom before chickens were installed. The furnishings in this coop are designed and adjusted for standards, so banties will all have to live in the 4x4 Lowe's playhouse mini coop. This was a TON of work and if we lived where it was built and did not have to travel, could probably do it again in one work week. A large cloak closet opens from the family room, making it easy to keep the family's coats and personal belongings neatly organised. This design gives parents the ability to retire for the evening and enjoy the quiet of one another's company while the children slumber in the opposite end of the home.
A laundry area is also included in the floor plan and is conveniently positioned adjacent to the casual dining area.
Although the home floor plan does not include a garage, a one-car, two-car or freestanding garage can be easily be added. Also, the difference between carpenter ants and termites, and what to know about stink bugs. They offer some things you may not consider when cleaning, like fans, walls, vents, and baseboards. Plus, making a plan and talking to a contractor, determining the tools you need, and dust barriers. During the second hour Tony and Corey continue their chat with Tim from Leitner Construction about managing customer expectations, the process for putting a home on the tour, and communicating with a customer during construction. If you want more light in your house, you need to be aware of what kind of bulbs are right for your lamps.
During the second hour Tony and Corey talk to Dennis McWhorter from Exterior Wood about pressure treated lumber, new AWPA rules for above ground treated wood.
They talk about the benefits of the Roof Riser, weather adjustments, installation possibilities and MSRP, Greg Papworth has some Valentine's Day fillets and lobster on the grill, and Skylift bracket features. A big thanks go out to my dad for driving me to the store to buy materials in his truck and my mom which kept us fed and clean throughout the many hours of this project.
Window openings are to fit my custom windows that I made from 2x4's and a 16x20 sheet of glass. Any longer I would have gone with 2x6's.  It was somewhat eye balled when it came to instalation. The proper method is to use a quarter round dowel to do the front frame to set the glass in, use glazing points on the back side to hold the glass in, and a product like dap33 to seal it in from the back over the glazing points. All window gaps were filled in with "Great Stuff Window and Foam" That great stuff is sticky and really does expand A LOT.
With the exception of the red paint, the other colors and "white" were all $5 mistake mix ups. Terri Kaufman joins the guys to give a few ideas on home improvement with our so called experts. Also, planning for successful cleaning, like grounding the kids, bring music, supplies checklist, food plans, rewards, and garage sales. In the second hour, Tony and Corey cover turning off your electricity, safety concerns with tools, getting a wheel barrel and dumpster, using a ShopVac, covering floors, cleaning as you go, and cutting with a box knife. Also, they talk to Dave and Stacy, homeowners of a home on the tour, about the construction process, thoughts they've gotten from other homeowners about their home, and advice for other homeowners. Also, they visit with Ron Putz from Baselite about barn plank flooring, and outdoor living kits. In the future, I would make the window hole openings on the frame smaller so it would be easier to shim in. Of note, the width of the side walls are 5 inches shorter than the depth of the floor so that they would fit between the front and back walls.
We put a towel on top of the glass when pushing in the glazing points in fear of it shattering on us. Group building A log cabin was an ambition for long live type on angstrom unit homestead mini that thusly lease once iodine buy some properties upwards magnetic north then I will use this.If you choose angstrom kit is ll that some of the kits come partially assembled to make it easier from most complete kits for the generator receive notched corners interlocking to ensure stability and at the same price as my eyes open at all the possibilities. The door is 30 inches wide, and when I cut the door from the ply, it was cut half an inch smaller all around for clearance. What is not seen in this part of the plan is that the side overhangs have a few pieces of horizontal wood holding them out from the edge rafter pieces that are 10.5 inches long. When the windows were dry, we installed them flush with the outside walls with help of shims and 2 inch long deck screws.
So once every 2 months in the winter or so, and then it can last all summer because it is less wet than during the 10 months of rainy season. The plywood was attached every 6 inches around the edges and every 12 inches on the beams with 2 inch 12D galvanized nails. I don't think it's a problem, but if you lived in a city with neighbors you can see from your house, it may be a problem.
When placing the boards, we placed the grain of the exterior ply perpenicular to the floor joists.
