If you are like many, your air conditioner has been humming away for months. While hopefully your conditioner is serving you well, especially in this summer's heat, it's wise not to forget about the regular air conditioner maintenance that your system requires. Here are some tips to help ensure that your air conditioner will continue to perform at its best.
. . . Use the Sawzall to cut out the 2x4 that blocks our path. This is the same technique framers use when framing a doorway in a new wall. I want you to cut out the section of 2x4 that appears between the 2 studs in our line pocket (Step 6). It should essentially be a 4 length of 2x4. With that, Mike will have an unobstructed path in our framing. You are cutting out a portion of bottom rung in the ladder you just built, and a portion of the top plate in the knee wall that is already there. You can do this and get away with it because the 2nd interior 2x4 in the pocket is now providing some structure. Later, we will come back and put another 2x4 with construction adhesive in the knee wall before we patch the drywall on the Anne Street side (step 3). This is the quickest way to pull this off - and trust me, this step will make you feel like a real construction dude. [ . . . ]
