    Good video… but the constant announcing of each others name is obnoxious and made me stop watching it. Thanks, Chris. No problem, Chuck.

    Its a great and informative video, but for once I want to see someone shoot themselves with the framing nailer by accident and flip out on camera.

    4:05s onward is a major no-no with framing nailguns or any nailer. No part of the hand should be placed in front of the muzzle or near enough proximity. It's green shield workboots ball & heel bracing each plate & stud junction, like traditional framing, only using a nailgun to gun back instead of a framing hammer.

    These guns can shoot nails into concrete and that's 100s of feet/sec velocity. If the hand is in front of the muzzle and something goes wrong, and these things happen, it's a painful trip to the ER.

    At about 6:05s, after Chuck the contractor confused level for plumb, calls the 2×4 fastened to the concrete a "sole plate". It's a sill plate because sills sit on concrete, while soles go on wood. Basement stud walls don't require a sill plate. The bottom plate only needs a gasket to keep the lumber dry, saving on material.

    Looks like Chris doesn't want receptacles in that wall. I don't know where this video was filmed, but bag insulation went out in the mid-1970s. Paper and basement foundation cinder block are incompatible.

    Well Chris and Chuck, I hope you didn't want to glue your drywall, since you stapled the insulation to the face of the stud. That job would fail inspection in my neck of the woods.

    I thought you were supposed to use pressure treated for the base plate.

    I'm a union framer and also own my own framing company your wall looks like shit, there's no room for insulation and the bottom plate itself could be self tapped in while the whole wall is already built itself, drill in with the Hilti drill use 3 3 1/2 nails to tap it in yet alone you forgot to put down polytrap…. and tyvek that wall….. Jesus…

    Always use pressure treated lumber on the floor or against concrete

    What? No vapor barrier? No outlet electrical runs? Just because you have Campbell Hausfield air tools doesn't mean this will pass code where you live. It surely won't pass inspection where I live.
