          Rubbermaid's 32 gal. Roughneck Wheeled Trash Can’s durable construction withstands intense sunlight and freezing temperatures. A LinerLock bag cinch holds the liner bag in place. It has an over-sized handle for easy transportation

          I've had this for over a year, and it works fine. We do not get freezing temperatures here, so no problems like mentioned in another post.
          What I like about it is exactly the fact that it is very light, so it's easy to move around and pick up as needed.

          Joist hangers are designed to provide support underneath the joist, rafter or beam to provide a strong a connection. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a diverse line of hangers to handle almost any application with top flange, concealed flange and field skewable and slopeable options. LSU joist hangers connect a joist or rafter to the header, sloped up or down, and skewed right or left, up to 45 degrees.

          I've used these "joist" hangers for about 30 years. But I mostly use them as rafter hangers, not joist hangers.
          If you are building a simple house/cottage/shed/garage with a gable roof, and a 3/12 or 4/12 roof pitch (these are the common ones), then you nail these to your ridge beam BEFORE you put the ridge beam up in place.
          Just measure out for 16" on center ("OC") or 24 inch OC, depending on your frame design. After the ridge beam is up and in place, with these hangers attached, you cut the ends of your 2x6 rafters (these will even work with 2x8 rafters) at a slight angle (about 22.5 deg. for 3/12) and your rafters will just drop into place like a foot into a comfortable shoe.

          Make sure the rafter is pushed up against the ridge beam, then nail it into the hanger on both sides. Then your upper end of the rafter is done. Toe-nail it onto you cap plate on the wall at the other end, then trim the end with a skilsaw to suit your design.
          I've built about 15 basic houses this way. It would make building a garage or shed pretty easy as well.Read Less
