C# and C++ developer at a software company. On the weekends I spend a lot of time fixing and remodeling my 2.5 story 1926 foursquare house.

comment How can I level sistered floor joists?
A picture or diagram would really help me visualize the problem here. If you don't have the rep to add it yourself provide a link and someone else can edit your post with the picture.

comment What can I do to a chain link fence to make it dog proof?
You can make a DIY version of this with PVC pipes suspended on wire run along the top of the fence. I did this with a wooden fence by installing the wire/pipes between the tops of the wooden fence posts. Not sure on the best way to secure it with a chain-link fence.

comment Can I build 11' x 5.5' loft with 2x2x8 beam and 2x4 joist?
If you have a 2x8 around the parameter, why are you using 2x6 for the floor joists? From your plans it looks like you are already 8" deep so why not make each joist 2x8?
