In all seriousness, I hope she got a good dinner out of that, at the very least!
She said, and I kid not, "I felt sorry for you all trying to cut that wood with a skill saw. I couldn't watch anymore."

She will be getting dinner the place of her choice this weekend with no cap. Hopefully that will help. :) Probably sushi, which would be nice.

......Awesome wifey! BTW, if you go the way I suggested, set the blade depth just a hair deeper than the OSB and favor the outside of the line. This might keep you from winding up with a "lip" here and there or taking slices off the window framing. Good luck

Not to throw a wet towel on to your project, but ... are you following any building codes, at all? Prescriptive? Got your lateral bracing needs covered? Are your headers sufficient? Does the ground ever freeze there, or could it settle? I can't tell from your pics if you've got any kind of below-grade foundation piers or... I'd hate for your windows to crack and your doors to get stuck ...

Living in southern NC the ground doesn't freeze. I'd worry if I was more north. Also, living in the county, this isn't considered a perm. building, so it's basically a shed. I'd even go to say that 70% of the yards have some type of shed on skids in the back yard. All that's required for a shed is 24 on center walls with 16 on center 2x4 floors. In comparison to the other trash I've seen in the neighborhood, this one is far better.

The only that I'm worried about, and will add extra support too, are the load bearing parts of the floor. That's not to hard to fix with some sweat equity.

Guess thats how it comes out when you work with one foot on the edge of a milk crate and the other on a lawn mower handle.

Can't speak to the quality, but saw a similar system from HF a while ago - seems like a good deal.

FWIW I use this stuff in a commercial application at work. I am in the environmental clean up business and have to install relatively disposable systems to cure problems. At one of my sites I have 3 150 hp/750 CFM air compressors to do my clean up work. I bought some rapid air kits to run local air in my site workshop area and it rocks. It was easy to work with and so far has been worry free after about 6 months.

A friend wants me to run plant air in his new Man Castle and this is the shit I'm gonna use to do it. What would be a 2 day job will take me less than 6 hours from what I can tell.

I just looked at the blog link and there were 2 bitches: price of the tube, no dryer. I can buy cheaper tubing all day long but it will not hold pressure over time. High pressure air line breaks aren't fun take my word for it. Air line dryers are not expensive and can be had by the superhuman effort of, oh let's say a trip to WalMart, or Harbor Freight.

When I did my shop I ran 1/2" black pipe all over the place for air. I'm not sure I would want anything else that was going to be sheetrocked over and inaccessible. It was alot of work though. If I would have used plastic I would want it surface mounted.
