I think 3 piece clamping ring drains are available with either a 2" spigot outlet (a no hub drain) or a 2" FIP outlet? Possibly in cast iron instead of plastic.

In the first case you could just...

Right, that's the rule I used to figure out what the previous posters had left out of their descriptions.

I've only done it once, but here's the theory as I understand it:

Start at the top row you want to remove. You need a tool called a shingler ripper, which is a long flat bar with wider head than...

It should be possible to check with a moisture meter, but I'm not sure what the maximum moisture level for staining would be.

Last time this came up, I was wondering if the slope along the walls leading to the corner drain needed to be the full 1/4" per foot. That would mean for a single plane floor, the slope on the...

When using a pre-slope, the top mud bed is constant thickness. So if the high point of the pre-slope is 1-3/4" above the low point of the pre-slope, the same will be true of the top mud bed.

That may be true if the pressure treated lumber is Southern Yellow Pine, where the wood is fairly porous. If the lumber is Douglas Fir, it is quite non-porous, and the treatment doesn't penetrate...

1) I don't, but I do know that in order for it to work you would need a very good gap-filling adhesive, likely an epoxy. You'll also want to use select struct 2x4s, to maximize the tension capacity...

So the saw only bevels left and miters left, it won't bevel right or miter right.

Riftsawing a log maximizes the number of quartersawn boards you get. Again, there's a terminology difference, don't ask me why.

Going back to the OP, is there a preference between quarter sawn and plain sawn float sticks?

I recall that generally quarter sawn expands and contracts less in width, so that would mean that...

The OP referred to rough opening width, not frame size. And a 21.5" RO width is what you'd get with nominal 3x framing at 24" o.c.

Are you 100% sure that your bottom layer is only 1/2", and not 5/8"? If it's 1/2" nominal, the actual thickness will be less, e.g. 15/32" or 7/16". 5/8" nominal is the minimum thickness recognized...

Is KDAT the same as KD19? I'm thinking that the moisture content of undried pressure treated lumber is much higher than 19%, so the KD19 may be the same as KDAT.
