So yesterday, Sunday, because the weather was a warm 50 degrees, I went to a job site to measure a building. It is a new project. The owner of a small house wants to convert it into a business occupancy. He has a tenant that operates a small frame shop. It is a small house, but a neat house. There are tons of new apartments going up around Durham, and this little house sits right behind a new project. It reminds me of the movie "Up" and the book I recently read "Under One Roof"
Some times you get to see some neat things as this house was built with "real" 2 x 4s, yep I measured them and they were actually 2" x 4". No insulation in the walls, as it is being stripped and renovated on the inside. Wood slats and plaster.
