    He drew up drawings when we where 1st doing our plans. I used this and supplied him basic sketches with dimensions. Cut down on his paper work, I received a verbal price within a few hours and went into the production queue. Maybe just lucky with the manufacturer's order books.

    Less than 2 weeks think 8 or 9 days.
  3. I see there is a guy on fleebay selling a few nudara icf blocks. Would have bought it myself if it wasn't the other side of country.

    Don't underestimate the weight of swinging a nail gun all day esp above your head! Remember to come back and tell us how you get on!

    What exactly do you mean with block crimp? The joist was made at the factory.

    Rim joist and metal beams where in place. Everything was marker out and measured then supplied to manufacturer.

    I didn't realise you could make posi joists on site. Luckily we have a factory a few miles from us and ordered joists in small quantity, think smallest order was 15.... All joists where made in factory, we have a metal I beam in centre and used this side for a few mm packers where we had more tolerance on top chord. The minimum was 45mm overhang on top chord, the timber is 47mm wide and the top chord is a mm into the eps. I did have a few sleepless nights between ordering and joists arriving!

    No brackets. Top chord of joist is sitting on the rim joist.

    Never knew this tool existed. I like a shinny toy as much as the next person but TBH I don't think this would be on my list, It's pretty easy to hammer a 40mm twist nail even in quantity!
