  2. Fantastic video, and something every carpenter should know. Plumbers are idiots, they go in and hack to hell everything. You need to understand this so that you can properly transfer the load when the plumber drills a 5" hole in a 2 x 10 joist. #PlumbersAreIdiots

  3. Can you cut out part of a rim joist? 9"X14" in between the joists.

  4. Why are you using screws and not nails? I'm doing a remodel and don't know what kind of screws you used and why.

  5. Do you have a suggestion for a supporting a tub(on the bottom) that is already installed and the dry wall is up…I'm willing to cut the dry wall on both ends of the wall and try and put something under it…I'm looking for the issues that I need to think about once I start and any tips that would help(make it less frustrating)…the tub squeaks when I stand/shower and I know that eventually it will split/break…I want to try and prevent this.  Thanks.

  6. 3/4" plywood maybe 4 to 5 feet long, to strengthen floor joist? Why not use SIMPSON rigid steel straps top and bottom of the holes you weakened to provide drain pipes?
