Mailbox supply & installation


Another baby step towards improvement of your environment and home.

Selection and installation of an item such as a mailbox is simple, or so you would think. It’s remarkable how many times an item as this can ruin the theme you are trying to create. Installation too can have a negative impact if it’t not completed correctly.

French doors and frames


I was asked by a gentleman and his wife to construct and install a solid wood frame and a french door. They wanted to seperate their family room and front hallway while still retaining the light emitting from the front door. In addition the added insulation to the main bedroom was a very welcome quality. As with all construction work as long as the tradesman keeps to the sound building principals the results will always satisfy the tradesman and please the owners or engineers.

The owner is a bit of a handyman and decided that he himself was going to install the architrave and the infill and there by saving some costs of construction. This is a relatively normal event as some people either don’t know how to proceed with certain parts of their project or do not have the necessary tooling. In any event, EarthRam is here to help.

Apartment roof


Because of the space constrictions I had to build my roof in-situ so as to accomodate the required fall of the roof, which is 3 degrees.

I built the roof on the footprint of the building which provided the dimensions. To accomodate the 3 degree fall I jigged it up, and as you can see it worked out very well.

Once it was all fitted and bolted up and I was happy with the outcome, I dismantled it and stored it away until I finish the walls, after which I will simply erect it on the wall plate.
