    WE01 NEW! Advanced Framing: Codes and Practices November 28, 2018 | 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM | Speaker: Mike Guertin

    Advanced wall framing practices and details were developed by NAHB and HUD in the early 70's to reduce material

    and labor costs without reducing wall strength. Now Advanced Framing techniques embrace floor, wall and roof framing

    practices, and are promoted to improve energy efficiency. Learn how the overall principles of Advanced Framing boil

    down to simple field-applied details that are easy to incorporate and code compliant.

    1. Discover the purposes and advantages for advanced framing

    2. Review floor framing details such as joist sizing, spans, and building codes

    3. Outline several wall framing details, including stack-framing layout, wall partition backers, and corner details

    4. Identify multiple rafter/ceiling framing details such as truss heel design, roof framing, and rafter tail options

    WE02 NEW! Bidding Wisely November 28, 2018 | 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM | Speaker: David Gerstel

    Bidding Wisely is the first part of a two-part course. The second focuses on estimating. During the course on bidding,

    the presenter, David Gerstel, will focus especially on:

    • Moving beyond bidding for free and turning pre-construction services into a source of earnings

    • Making the move to getting paid for pre-construction work – especially estimating -- in achievable steps so

    that you do not risk alienating your clients

    • Understanding that bidding and estimating are two very different processes requiring different mindsets and

    that bidding occurs in two phases with estimating in between

    • Creating systems for the first phase including effective responses to inquiries from prospective clients, using

    lead evaluation sheets, visiting prospective clients, and inviting clients to work with you on a Cost Planning

    basis, i.e. paying you for your preconstruction work.

    • Creating systems for the second phase of bidding, especially determining how much to add to the hard costs

    of a project for profit

    • Understanding that in construction profit must be included in bids to cover a third level of cost – with direct

    costs and overhead being the first two – and that profit is hard earned income above and beyond wages and

    is not merely gravy

    • The harsh reality of profit possibilities in the construction business and how to deal with it

    • Protecting a bid from erosion during construction with essential contract clauses and a thorough and fair

    change order procedure

    David believes that by looking over his new book - Nail Your Numbers, A Path to Skilled Construction Estimating and

    Bidding - in advance of the presentation you will amplify the benefits of attending. The book is available from Amazon or

    the bookseller of your choice. David looks forward to extended discussion with attendees after his presentation.

    WE03 Creating Clients for Life – A New Business Model November 28, 2018 | 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM | Speaker: David Lupberger

    Homeowners always have work that needs to be done on their home. Even in a down economy. The Home Asset

    Management Plan shows professionals how to build and optimize relationships with clients by offering an annual home

    evaluation. This annual evaluation identifies potential problem areas providing homeowners with findings,

    recommendations, and estimates to assist them in managing their largest asset. Work is identified and “booked” as

    much as 12 to 24 months in advance. The benefits of this business model are numerous.

    1. Is recession proof – even in a bad economy, homeowners still need help

    2. Provides ongoing cash flow - generating work orders even in a down economy

    3. Is proactive, not reactive – we don’t wait for customers to call – we call them and generate work orders!

    4. Allow industry professionals to build life-long relationships with customers becoming their “contractor/advisor for

    WE05 NEW! Cautionary Case Studies: Damage in Northwest Multifamily Housing Walls with Vinyl

    Siding November 28, 2018 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Speaker: George Tsongas

    Many laboratory and test hut studies have indicated that walls clad with contact-applied vinyl siding work well. Yet there

    is surprising and unexpected field evidence of moisture damage to wall components behind vinyl siding as typically

    applied (without a rain screen design or exterior insulation) in multifamily housing in Oregon and Washington. While I

    have had the opportunity to observe wall openings in many dozens of multifamily housing complexes with most other

    common types of siding, I have been present at wall openings at only seven multifamily housing complexes that each

    include numerous buildings with vinyl siding. In every one of those, most of the buildings had some damage to wall

    components behind the vinyl siding. The damage did not appear to be related to water intrusion into the walls from the

    outside. This presentation describes the damage that was observed and the conditions that existed. It also postulates

    how and why damage occurs in walls with contact-applied vinyl siding, at least in some parts of the Pacific Northwest,

    and under what conditions. Recommendations for avoiding such problems are presented.

    1. Identify the general background of moisture damage in Northwest housing walls with all types of siding

    2. Outline the main types of moisture-related damage that have o
