Carpenter and Contractor turned web developer.

I love building things with my hands, but I also love the mental challenge of programming. I am mostly interested in back-end web development using mainly PHP and really trying to continually improve my code, writing in a clean and expressive way, following SOLID principles.

I also work a lot with javascript, html, css, sass, etc., but I don't enjoy it as much and do it mostly out of necessity.

comment Can I hang a swing from 2 by 8 roof beams?
I like the idea of a steel pipe. It would help distribute the load over multiple joists. You'd have to drill holes through all of the joists to get it in through, unless you strapped it to the bottom of the joists with 2-hole straps.

comment how to attach framing to this window in concrete?
Yes, that is ideal, because it can be a moisture barrier, vapour barrier and insulation all in one.

comment How to secure vinyl post caps?
I would also try silicone method. Still removable if you really need to. But should keep them on reasonably well. I would not say it is super strong though.

comment What kind of floor is this?
That is NOT bamboo. Doesn't really look like Oak, could possibly be Maple...
