@ShatsBassoon i have decided that is my chalk line and nothing you say can change my mind
Do you crown out or in bruv? Every framer has a different answer.
Crown out or up. Those who differ are wrong.
No. Are there alternatives? I really don't care, I just need it covered up. The people I bought the house from (7 years ago) had a weird adult son that lived in the basement. He had fucking coaxial cable running through the whole house he fucking drilled through the wall and has it looped through the aluminum siding. He had 6 cables coming out of the ceiling to his room. I don't know what his story was. I found his porn stash.
I got a letter for him last summer, and I opened it. It was from the ministry of corrections saying that he might have been exposed to hepatitis during his last incarceration.
Wudda it matter? It’s not goin anywhere! - Old Italian framer
You have lots of options: vinyl, aluminium, cement fibre board, wood etc. Vinyl would be the cheapest.
Crown up because downforce. Crown out because on the interior side you can fix an overcrowned out stud but if its crowned in its significantly more difficult to adjust. Crown up when building walls so material lays flat where as crown down your material will rock/ends will be up.
Bonus question for anyone who cares to challenge
Can you name all potentials defects on structural lumber?
I was just about to post this.
I wasnt trying to steal your thunder bro

Thread is about carpentry now guy
No worries. What you need to know is that there are lots of different types of possible defects in wood and together, @ShatsBassoon and I know almost all of them
He can’t even fully answer his own question, and you can’t even swing a hammer
If that’s a GIF, it’s not moving.
