Hi Kevin,
What do you do with the leftover parts after building one of your creations? Do you have an organized storage system that allows you to find the left handed widget next year when you need it? Or is it just in random piles? Or does it all get sold on ebay? I ak, because, I'm just starting to accumulate stuff (wife calls it junk:( ) and don't want to end up with random piles or a divorce.

Joe,

He keeps it, of course! Never know when you might need that left-handed widget. Organization to be determined.

At the risk of sounding morbid, someday (hopefully MANY years from now) when Kevin goes to that big machine shed in the sky, his family will have the MOTHER OF ALL ESTATE AUCTIONS! I bet there's guys all over the northeast just praying they outlive him so they can attend.

Tractorguy, you should have holy pictures printed up with Kevins picture on them.
Bontai Joe, you should petition the Pope for his sainthood.
Kevin, you are one hell of a guy. My head would have exploded by now.

I'm not going to wait that long to have an auction...
For a while I was building a new building every year just to keep up with storage space.... Now I'm kinda mad... My shop is full and I don't have room to move... I think I would do much better just selling everything and buying new stuff when I need a part...
You guys just don't have any idea how much junk I got...
My carburetor box for small engines is piled two feet high and its 4 feet long... I have no idea what on the bottom... I have not seen the bottom for years... I'm really thinking about having an auction... Anyone know what time of year brings in the best money for auctions ????

Kevin,

PLLEEEEEEEASE let us know when it's going to be! Makes no difference when you have it. It could be midnight on Christmas Eve.

If you post it, they will come.

Kevin,
I think most of us would be at your auction. Heck, anyone that measures the amount of carborators he has in CUBIC FEET has untold treasures just waiting to move from your barn to someone elses. I know I'll be there early with cash money in my pockets.

Wait Kevin, don't auction that stuff.........open a museum!

Everytime I clean out my stuff, a few months later I need some of the junk I got rid of. Drives me nuts. Although it is nice to have a little room in the shop to work. I feel your pain!!!

Best Wishes

I have heard they are suppose to be stronger than a 2x. But i have never use them seen them use on TV shows alot and on some houses around here for roof rafters.

Hi Kevin,
Those joists are fine to use. They are stronger, lighter and allegedly cheaper than 2 by lumber. They won't warp or split, but they gotta stay reasonably dry. If they are constantly wet, the centers tend to get soft and that compromises the strength. Fine in a barn but not great for an outside deck.

Kevin,

The only rap I hear on them is that firemen hate them. They carry the same load as a standard solid wood joist, but in case of fire, they burn through much faster. If you are a fireman working in a burning house, it would certainly be a cause for concern if you have less time before the floor goes out from under you. However, not a really a concern for what you are using them for.

Hey Jody!

Please show me that picture Kevin posted so I can see what kind of rafters he's talking about. For some reason his are the only pictures I have trouble with.
