Steel or timber frame??

The chemical used is permethrin, it is basically a very strong fly spray.
Hills Guy you do realize that timber frames come in prefab form in the same way steel does?

You can get your timber in treated pine for about 15% extra so termites aren't an issue if you don't want them to be. Both are relatively quick to…

Brickwork ok?

This doesn't look like the framer. The bricks work on the external corner which is the direction you should work bricks as the internal corner can use the cavity…

untreated timber for roof frame

You either get non treated pine or H2 treated pine, H3 is for outdoor exposed timber and H4 is below ground. There are still a lot of houses that…

Frame Standards & Quality

Andy some manufacturers stamp there name on the ply bracing around the house so you could find them that way. I recommend asking the builder who the manufacturer is…

I think frame and truss is stuffed up?

A stud is not required under the truss in most circumstances, they are often required for trusses that carry loads but not a common truss such as this one.
However in…

who does the design for wall bracing layout ?

Iā€™m not sure why this old thread was rekindled but for anyone reading this that is a little confused.
An engineer does not have to design the wall bracing, it will…

slab size laid smaller than plans.

Over a large volume of jobs its inconceivable to expect a stuff up never to occur, its the nature of the building industry and everyone in it knows this. …

Its not the pictures I'm judging you by, its your comments, if you really do work on difficult jobs then you owe the industry the courtesy of not making it…

The fact you think its easy makes me question the scope of your work, also the fact you believe the brick cavity can be reduced to 15mm is another reason…

I think its rather naive to just say its easy, the average house slab is but complicated jobs are by no means easy. These jobs are priced accordingly of…

The fact its out in two places indicates its more likely the plan than measuring the wrong side of the boxing. Once again we don't know the plan, it…

They will scab a piece of timber to the side of the truss that will need to have a back span of about 2/3rds of the eave distance. It…

This sounds about right, it sounds like you have a situation where your horizontal beam picks up trusses or rafters but then that beam lands on another beam running…

Yes your right I meant to say bearer, got confused with duke referencing 190X45 as joist and bearer in his post my mistake.

Do you have any supporting evidence to show that termite barriers "often fail"? I find it very hard to believe that company's would offer a 10yr warranty if termites…

Bearer size - 1st post to group

190x45 F7 as a joist spans 2.6 easily but as a bearer spanning 2.8m 190x45 isn't sufficient. A single 140x45 F7 wont span 1.8m either.
