Hi Everybody! 

 We've been keeping an eye on this forum for over a year now.  We've found answers to every question that we've ever had on this website, and want to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge and experience!

  We have been working on our house for approximately 8 months now in Holly Springs, NC. A lot of delays, mostly because of framers an electrician.

You can see the pictures at Yahoo Coments and encouragement are welcome and appreciated!  We've just finished sheetrock, are getting ready to paint,

We both have full time jobs and this work on top. Getting very tired and can’t wait to finish.

 

Thank you, Darko & Jennifer

Your house looks wonderful. It is good to see everything is working out for you.

 

I almost died when I read the comment about your framer showing up with a book on how to build stairs.

Thank you!

 

I had many sleepless nights because of framers.

 

Work was progressing nicely until framing of stairs.

I’ am HVAC mechanic so I learned little bit about framing by watching other framers on several jobs.

However, not enough to notice numerous code violations, and there was a lot. From wrong nailing patterns on OSB to just not installing certain loading points and hurricane clips to installing one LVL on wrong roof valley. After failing inspection several times it was obvious that I have to get new framer or get stuck with these guys.

Town of Holy Springs is very strict on inspections.

 

Thankfully new framer was great. They came in immediately and fixed everything in about one week. Everything now looks good!

 

We are about two months behind were we wanted to be originally when we started construction.

 

Hopefully things should be easier from now on.

 

Please excuse my grammar and spelling, I am not good as my girlfriend.

 

Darko
