1/2” OSB is going anywhere from 52.00- 64.00 down here. Two years ago if someone tried to charge you 10.00 you felt like they were overpriced. 8.00 was normal.

I usually pre-drill and drive spiral/ring shank galvanized nails by hand. Doesn’t take too many, and I hate bending nails with the siding nailer!

Fire rock paver installation

Is anyone familiar with setting 1 3/4” Firerock pavers in Versailles pattern? Looking for tips on thick stone leveling systems to use and setting materials.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I would jack it up. Slowly, a little at a time, and let the wood relax between jacking. Listen while you are jacking the joists up.
