Update on sagging stair project

2021.12.09 00:36 Noshoesded Update on sagging stair project

~10 months ago, I post here asking for feedback on fixing my sagging stairs. Today someone commented on that post saying they had a similar issue. For that reason I thought I'd post an update -- mostly as a warning to other hobbyist carpenters of jumping in too deep. Or possibly help someone else anticipate what they're getting into and do it better than me.
Here is a chronological journal of the project in about 100 photos: https://imgur.com/a/C5pUeiq
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking but a quick run down of notable events/points/learnings: • Structural engineer couldn't find a cause of the sag (without more invasive methods) and since the deflection wasn't migrating, said nothing needed to be done. • As a safety measure, I jacked up the house slightly over 6 weeks and added a second post under the stairs in the basement to ensure stability and anticipating a need to support any extra weight • Beware surprises in an old house. Originally was going to shim or add blocking to the stringers to rectify the sag. When I demo'd the stairs, I was surprised to find 3/4" wide stringers. So I opted to sister additional 2" stringers on the wings and added blocking in the middle stringer. To ensure levelness, I cut the stringers in place which was a big PITA and a bit hazardous. • Getting to this point took almost 6 months, as decisions on the project required research and I have a 60+ hr a week job. Also, logistically I needed to find time to do demo when I could thoroughly clean up dust before family/pets came home. All in all, not a great scenario to do this work. • My workshop is outside in the detached garage (to keep the dust down for those short moments I can work). Lots of wasted time walking back and forth • Cutting things to fit in a house that isn't square was a big pain. Lost of custom cuts. There are some gaps between the treads and risers which is annoying and I see every flaw. I will fill with caulk or wood filler eventually. • I was concerned about structural integrity in the long run, so I glued and nailed through the threads. I'll eventually stain and fill holes and hope they don't look like shit. • As expected, I fixed the stair sag but pushed it somewhere else, I.e. the landing at the top of the second floor. I'm still in the process of grading things and getting creative on how to put a hardwood floor of top of a 1-1/8" sag and have it look okay. I'm actually going to rip up some of the work shown at the end of the album. • There are some code things that could make the house harder to sell since this is "new" work (but probably not in the current market). At some point, esp in an old house, the project has to come to an end (or else you might as well demo the house and start over). • I spent about 2k in lumber prices for everything shown. Probably another 1k+ on tools I didn't have. A track saw was a real game changer and wish I had gotten one years ago.
If any other hobbyist is planning to do this, I'd say don't. Risks, stress of solving the unknown, and logistics are the three big reasons, and the payoff is shit if you're a perfectionist like me. That said, my carpentry skills have increased astronomically and I think the end product is an improvement (also, the stairs can accommodate furniture that is like 4+ wider than before the project).
Probably will wrap this project up in the next few weeks (with the exception of staining, painting, and installing the banister)

It’s the only possible explanation for the radio silence. He did get the J&J vaccine, which provides slightly less protection against the virus than glucose . He is now on a ventilator while Ben posts pictures of Florida on Tim’s IG.

2021.12.09 00:36 PaperSpoonTooth Thought

I have chosen not to have kids because I believe the world is overpopulated and the future of humanity is bleak. If I am right “my kids” will never exist and won’t suffer. They also won’t add to the suffering of others. If I am wrong “my kids” will still never exist and won’t suffer. So, tell me again how I am selfish?

2021.12.09 00:36 blackvulcan215 PSA: Property Taxes Due 12/10/21, Friday!

Ugh! If you are like me, you dread paying taxes. It's a necessity to keep things going; that is what I tell myself. I am so poor right now.
Please don't forget and be subject to the penalty. I have the funds in my savings and planned to pay on 12/6. Got busy with work and stuff and didn't pay until this second. This could be you two days from now.
This message is for those that pay their property taxes separately and not part of their mortgage impound. These were originally due 11/1/2021 but if you pay by 12/10/21, it will still be good.
Be safe and be kind!

2021.12.09 00:36 Nelumbo_Nucifera SLPA school setting no access to anything

I’m an slpa that recently got hired through a contracting agency to complete an assignment at a charter school.
The thing is, they hired me on because the SLP they had was traveling 3hrs+ to the school and they paid for her meals, hotels, mileage. So they hired me to take her spot at this campus.
I’ve worked at a private clinic, and in early intervention. This is the first school placement I’ve had. I’m used to writing daily soap notes.
The thing is, ever since I’ve started. I’ve been asked to use my own computer, even though I’m W2. Okay. Fine. I’ve used my own personal computer, the slp printed off the students goals for me and I’ve been working like that. I have not been granted access to any website to document a students progress or data. Like I said, I’m used to writing daily soap notes, so this is really bothering me.
I was told by the school that my agency is the one that needs to provide a computer to document. That they weren’t going to provide anything. Then my agency tells me that they are Not going to provide a computer since they are not physically there.
For liability purposes, yknow I have friends who work in the school setting and I asked them and they tell me they document for billing or bill for medicaid.
I am concerned about the lack of documentation. I don’t know if I am overreacting, or just overly worried. But I am concerned that neither I or the SLP is documenting anything.
Im a newly licensed slpa since the summer and I don’t know if this is normal or not in the school setting. I take my job seriously, I’m data driven and this is just new to me. I am seriously considering letting this place go.
The sped coordinator was recently audited a week ago at this charter school by TEA. It just seems that they have absolutely don’t care about documenting anything. My slp does not care, she would bring the kids into the conference room - which is where speech is done, and just let the kids run about while she was on her phone.
The kids were used to doing this, so when they transitioned to me they were like wild animals thinking no work needs to be done.
She’s about to retire, she’s on a salary, not hourly like me. She doesn’t care.
I am concerned about my license and any sort of retaliation.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks
Also the sped coordinator completely ignores me when I ask for updates on granting me access to documenting.

Viendo cómo se han desarrollado el presente sexenio y cómo se han esforzado por querer quedar en la historia como el movimiento definitivo por México por parte del bando del "Ganso Imperator" me hace preguntar ¿Ustedes cómo creen que se vea en el futuro estos tiempos? ¿Cómo ahora vemos el régimen del PRI? ¿Cómo un verdadero momento de regeneración nacional? ¿Cómo creen?

2021.12.09 00:36 Solember The Watch belongs to...

I believe the watch belongs to Jack.
I believe that Jack is a plant in the criminal underground and that Clint knew this.
He was at the auction to buy the watch. When he saw the sword, he was trying to buy it to help Clint, but had to back out so that he could buy the watch.
Kate Bishop's dad was part of the criminal underworld, and so was her mother.
Jack is in a relationship with the mother to keep an eye on her.
Who did she call after Clint left? I don't see a lot of discussion on this one, but I believe it could have been 3 people.
Yelena Fisk Echo
Now... note that Yelena went out of her way to attack Clint without Kate on hand. She also went to great lengths not to kill Kate (even saving her). She left the battle after Kate returned.
She trained Kate (or at least put her in a lot of martial arts and physical classes).
Fisk is a weak connection, but fits with what we know is left to come, and it sets up a twist ending with Jack.
Echo is less likely to have been a direct call, but may have been a secondary consequence of Fisk.
We have a few pieces in play right now.
Tracksuit mafia (with a Skrull? - see Loki) Kingpin, Echo and Kazi Clint, Kate and LARPers Jack Eleanor (mom) Derek (dad)
