I've never see that particular bench, but floating-type benches are rather popular and seen here regularly.

Aside from the problem with lack of pre-slope, I'm wondering just how he plans to...

That looks like the beginnings of an EIFS exterior, Rigo. Are you saying they apply a cement-based stucco over that instead?

"Type of bench" as in steel framed or as in not continued to the floor?

When I mentioned 8 inches, I meant the depth of the block. I think you're saying yours are 4 inches deep. That's from the sheathing to the outside face, right? And that would make more sense to me...

Naaa, all is well at my casa. Get a little cancer now and then, but who doesn't? :D

I'm surprised they'd put a full masonry veneer on there for a stucco finish. Those are full 8" blocks?

Not the glass that concerns me, Rigo, it's the frame. Properly thermally broken aluminum frames are not common. We had a place here in San Antonio making them for a while, rather good ones, but...

These will be thermally broken aluminum window frames, Rigo?

What were the original windows?

Rigo, I don't always agree with ol' Goldstein, but I do on this one. Pretty much to the letter.

I built only one new house for a couple who had been through the experience before. The previous...

Removing and redesigning that roof now will be a PITA, but quite doable. Removing and redesigning that roof after complete dry-in is also doable, but is much more likely to create other problems...

Yeah, it belongs in the Mud Box, Rigo, and I'll move it there. But it's well within range of subjects the site is willing to entertain. :)

I think we should eliminate the CX from the title, too,...
