Follow Through!

I spent April Fool's Day travelling to two different sites with wood frame structures.  While I observed several items that will eventually make this blog, one that stood out the most is shown below.  The anchor bolt installation was consistently inconsistent, with about 1 in 3 installed correctly.  From cut-off anchor bolts cast outside the edge of the sill plate to anchor bolts embedded into wood studs to the 1/2" diameter in lieu of 5/8" diameter, it was a free-for-all for picture taking.  But please, when everything comes together and all you have to do is place the nut on the bolt, just do it.  That nut has threads just waiting to be twisted onto the end of the bolt.
