The mock wall

I’ve been known for creative, sometimes interesting (read: Wild) solutions to everyday problems, but this particular project was a personal pleasure for me, and something I designed and built myself. I love building things, but this little wall made me very happy!

This is a mock wall, 8′ high, 12′ wide, built half of 2×4 framing, and half of 2×6 framing. It’s purpose is to give us a place to mock up the new water management system we’re using on the house we’re rebuilding, and let all the contractors collaborate on how exactly each material and layer fits with the others.


The background here is that i’m the Owners Rep in this project (one of several services I offer!) and i’m handling a wide variety of tasks with the intention of keeping this project on track.

Being an Owners Rep is similar to being a Project Manager, with the key difference being that i’m assisting the owner in handling/managing things, not working for the construction company. This means i’m specifically looking out for the owners best interest (something I always did as a General Contractor or Handyman) and handling the day-to-day tasks and decisions for the owner. Among the many benefits to the owner that I bring to the table are, my extensive background in construction, my high attention to detail, and my vast organizational skills.

Some days are more fun than others, but this wall has been a centerpiece of sorts for me in this project, and I like it. 🙂
