    I'm late to the party, but yes, you definitely want flashing under that door. A pan is good. I
    use lead sheet (roll) and make my own flashing. But something is needed to keep the water out
    and prevent...

  • Posted in thread: Fit, not so much. Trim yes on 07-16-2017 at 07:05 AM
    Anytime I've had a belly under the casing I always add a filler strip. The goal being to keep

    I agree with the sheetrock being hung wrong. I don't think you have "bowed" studs as much as

    All of those floor joists are missing metal hangers. Especially the notched joists on the
    center beam. This has decreased their load carrying value and definitely need hangers applied
    while you're und...
