Cutting plywood out of wdw rough opening.


A lot does depend on what you are doing.
Many don't housewrap but leave that to the siding guy. In reno/additions I quite often am the siding guy so I housewrap while the wall in on the floor.

Most of my work has level footing/basement as often I am the one who did it.

One thing i cant stand is alot of tools and clutter on the deck. Give me a saw a nail gun and a saw zaw and FTW lol
Ill save the house wrap after the walls are up to install it properly. One continuous wrap around the corners. if your siding it then you must have pump jacks set up anyway to install the house wrap easily.
And if your that good then come pour one of my 180' long condo pours, we could use ya lol

I cut and overlap at the corners
Never done a 180' pour, That would be one big addition

I do my cut outs with a circular saw while the wall is down. I do the house wrap as part of the siding phase. To each his own. My method is the way I learned it thirty years ago. Still seems efficient.
