Retrofitting becoming more "fun" with this new 20mm cavity detail.

Fold around corners, braces and keep the building paper taut to maintain a 20mm cavity.

All done to prevent the insulation from pushing out the building paper and obstructing airflow.

Painting the underside of the door sills that the painter missed so it will not fail for a Code Compliance Certificate (CCC). Prime it and paint it. Keep the timber protected from water.

Notes from renovation. -Check existing framing. This H1 timber framing does not meet today's Building Code standard (H1.2 & 15 or 50 year durability). Especially for an area, which will become a bathroom. So we ended up replacing the framing. -Rimu timber produce very fine airborne wood dust. As a person that suffers hayfever, this wrecked me. Take PPE seriously.
-PLS laser takes the cake for best accuracy and brightness. Just don't drop it.

Old Rimu joists remade into a table top as a side job on the site. Feels good to re-use old timbers. #makita #carpentry
