How far down?
Man that had me laughing really hard. If anyone had seem me they would have thought I was nuts. I feel for you and the cold. I hope you have some little bit better weather to work in soon.
"So I'm curious, do you deliver?"......... how's 50 bucks?"
This year it seems we have a bunch of bears around. So far (knock on wood) we've not had any issues with the two bears that frequent my place. My neighbors that have had problems either left garbage out or had barbecues knocked around, usually it is the yearling bears looking for an easy meal. how far away is that salt lick from your place. I put on in a stump this spring and the bears literally ripped the stump to shreds.
Panels should be installed textured side up with their long direction across the rafters or truss chords.
Lay panels across three or more supports, keeping the side marked "This Side Down" on the supports when using T&G panels.
A: Tom Silva replies: It doesn't make a bit of difference from a structural standpoint. A wall, a floor, or a roof will be just as strong no matter which side faces up or out. But on a newly sheathed roof, leaving the lightly textured side up does give a bit of extra traction.If the OSB has tongue-and-groove edges, there's another issue to consider. According to the Structural Board Association, the tongue-and-groove profile is not symmetrical, so the sheets must all be facing the same way for the joints to match. With those panels, look for the "This side down" stamp and follow that direction. http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/asktoh/question/0,,430695,00.html
I believe there is no right or wrong side for a wall, it's all covered by weather barrier, etc on the exterior anyways. The only reason there is a right way for a roof is the textured side is much less slippery to walk on. I would not sweat the wall panel. The bigger worry is overdriving nails or driving them too close to the panel edge.
