WHO WE ARE
In 2015 we quit our lives in the city to buy bare land in the country and build a timber frame home from scratch with our bare hands, debt-free, with no prior experience. It’s been a wild ride of ups, downs, highs, lows, rain and rainbows, but we haven’t lost sight of our goals and have gotten further in three years than we thought we’d get in ten. Join us as we build our house, develop our rural property, practice traditional skills such as gardening and food preservation and go to even greater heights (literally) of exploring the world through aviation as a new private pilot!

Comments

Rick Davenport says:

If you use that flex ducting you are a fool. It creates eddies with the pleating and slows the flow. Use metal with some 45’s. 90’s can slow down the flow. Just make sure to tape the seams. Attach a flapper on the ouside exit point so its a on way exit…

Andrew Rouen says:

for the hot knife, check a pottery supply for some A1 Kanthal resistance wire in 12 gauge

mike says:

What is a homerun in electrical?

Rick Davenport says:

I always put a stud on edge at the 4 foot mark on the stud walls. It makes for easier drywalling and make the wall bays more rigid.

Robert Thomas Mein says:

I admire a lot about you and your project, however — lately, you have been developing a bad habit of giving bad information on subjects you admit you are not familiar with. ABS is still the standard pipe for sewar drains in California and most of the west — usually a bit cheaper than PVC, which I’ve seen on projects in the eastern part of the country (“waste” = sewer). Just because there is a glue that will stick to both, doesn’t mean you’d mix them on a project, normally.

what the says:

That 14-3 you ran is only good for a 15 amp circuit not 20 amp.

dwC4u says:

Or just use some heavier cable like CAT5 or something

petnzme01 says:

The weirdest thing. You nail in the electrical boxes and screw in the blocking?.

Rick Davenport says:

I was always taught that setting your hammer on the floor gives you the ideal height to mount wall outlets along room walls…

Donald D'Egidio says:

Why not use a 3″ street elbow to get the bathroom vent vertical.

Tech Tips & Tech Stuff says:

Amazing how many people think these videos are in real time when in fact they are over a month old.

Christopher Stube says:

Reminds me of basket weaving or nest building.

Matthew Greene says:

There is a special stapler for wiring.

fjeinca says:

FYI, I’m a fan of both the Jessie Show and the Alyssa Show as they arise or even when U both R in frame. Also want to note that good news is even if you need better switches (much recommend), you can switch switches later easily.

Rick Davenport says:

Jesse, There is a hot girl sitting in a hot tub waiting for you. Shut up and get your butt out there…

chimairaxpsycho says:

Brotha, just use a razor knife to strip the wires, just make sure you are in the middle and have just the tip going into it. then cut the sheathing right at the inside top of the box where the wire comes through

Rick Anderson says:

Take a hint from an old IBEW electrician. Never ever use 14 gauge wire in your house. 1. You are limited to any a #15 amp breaker on that circuit. 2. You never know what the future will bring. So a #12 gauge wire gives you 20 amps of power. The additional cost of money is negligible in the big scheme of wiring your house.

Cathie Pieszak says:

DWV drain waste vent ? Waste  means sewer.

ajl0426 says:

You are wasting so much wire, install boxes first, then run wire. You can strip after you install in the box, use the tip of the strippers as if you are pulling out a splinter, pick at it, which will cut it, then pull it off.

Ben Miller says:

the several feet of straight pipe should be enough for you to pick up the far end where it comes up out of the ceiling the extra 1/4″ or so to put the 90 fitting on top of the drywall.

tubularguynine says:

For a place with no building codes, you sure have a lot of building codes.

Eddie B says:

The fitting between the pipe look like they will nix this idea in the bud! Stay tuned! #PLFL

Rick Davenport says:

Now you see why bathrooms are built with 2×6 in the walls that pipes run through. Jesse is having a learning time today…

Rick Davenport says:

Why dont you just slap some tape on the holes around the door for now. You are spending $ to heat the outdoors.

Delaney Antone says:

He is cool like if you agree
