Johnson also said he was sorry about his past support for the Nazi party. I guess he did not know at the time that the Nazis were also exterminating gays in the camps. I can still love his Glass House though...

What surprises are the differences in weight in the same stack of 2x4's. Some will weigh 2 x or more than another 2x4 off the same pallet.

Glore has steps without bricks inside and out. Harding Partner's web site has a nice photo of the rear view of the house with concrete steps on the outside continuing through the glass to the inside of the house.

If you can't find a long enough hinge and are limited to a 72 inch length, you can cut a hinge to make add on lengths as the pin inside is continuous. In the past, I have cut a shorter piece to add to the 72" for a door. You place the smaller piece at the bottom of the door so it is less noticeable....
