B Johnny : Seriously though brother. I never miss stepped once doing carpentry for 8 years until I did and it was the worse single moment of my life. Takes a minute to tie off, but falling can take a lifetime away.

Joe GOD’s Son : I’m framing for 30yr and ur the best buddy just remember safety first ur family is waiting on you bro

EngineerPrepper : I'm not afraid of heights...but watching this made me nervous...great vid

marc nathanael : no wonder hurricanes rip them up so easily......

J A : mad respect for that balance

Enrico Valiant : You have testicles of steel and the agility of a Ninja. Awesome video.

Chris Pearson : anyone else feel sick but at the same time amazed?

William Weston : Hi TheCrazyframer, I hope everything is going great with the house.. I had a friend that fell from a roof he was building just like you.. He worked with building houses for over 20 years. And had never been in a accident. Until last year when he fell from a roof without any safety gear.. I asked him what he would change in his way of working if he was able to do it again.. He told me "I would probably just use safety gear.." He is now Paralyzed, so be safe out there.

lpenap : I always have a beer in the fridge waiting to see your next video. Awesome mate! I'm gonna get that beer now

Adam Moore : He gets the job done fast before safety has a chance to come and give him a fine for not tying off.

Johnny Foodstamp : I think my favorite part of your videos is reading all the comments from the Safety Police. Cracks me up every time.

E30 M3 : My God, that lumber is beautiful. I haven't seen straight lumber in the U.S. in 15 years. You must be in Canada.

pendulousphallus : I don't know if it's the fish eye lens or whatever the fact that I'm softer than frig but I got vertigo watching this fullscreen.

lot maakchos : You'd be so much faster on Meth.

Joe Framer : It's hacks like this ,that make us professional framers pay high insurance rates, workman's comp rates, liability rates. ...and keep osha hanging around jobsite... Not to mention extremely bad framing practices,lack of hardware( H2.5) rafter clips..ect...just a complete Hack

friendlywhiteguy : Damn, you framers must be adrenaline junkies. You work at those heights with no ropes and swing around material and tools like its nothing.

JusBrewIT : One man show. Very nice. But when doing layout, it's 23 1/4" when pulling off the end of a building.

Elvis Putnoee : Is this how you build a house these days? F me no wonder it goes up so quickly it holds on bunch of thin nails that's it.. Wow..

Callum murphy : Lost for words here watching This, obviously v good carpenter but total stupidity with the lack of safety, some guys just think it's never gonna be them but if u work like this then u really looking for trouble......

Ok Ok : For future reference, you can use the nail rack of your nail gun to plane the sub fascia rather than having to reach for your speed square. This will make it easier since you’re hanging it alone.

Peter Kiernan : Really enjoying your videos,learn something new every one. No job to big or small to put on u tube, really appreciate your content.

Marcos Noble : I can't believe these little pieces of wood with nails are mainstream building in USA.

Rick Jasper : I've done framing, but this guy's acrobatic skills are impressive and terrifying

sgorno : This guys puts a lot of trust into 2x4's at that height. This makes me nauseated.

John Mason-Hill : Can you do a quick video on your tool belt and what you carry? Thanks for the vids. Love them!

TheJimbob1603 : Informative and fun to watch! Thank you!

mojave stalker : I have a question about using nails for joints , don't you need brackets , can you build everything just with nails?

Guust : Nice video if you're not afraid of heights and/or fast moving video..... 😉👍😁

Willis Cooper : Dont deck a roof like him. Cutting plywood while in the roof is bad news especially a 8/12 which is almost 40% slope. He is experienced framer and can handle it but too many novices watching this will get a hair and fall of their roof. Also if you drop back 1" on your layout from the gable end it allows your first piece to be an even 7' and still break on center of the truss.....more efficient use of plywood (OSB)

B Pease : thank you for taking the time to film what you do. That's difficult work that not many people get to see to appreciate.

la : How long have you been in the business? And, I swear for the longest time I read that username as "ThecrazyFARmer". Had me confused...

Joe Jaramillo : Most people think Construction workers are uneducated, Most college educated people don't know how to read a tape measure.

Brian Eaton : Serious butt pucker watching this. One puff of wind while he’s walking that gable across that flimsy plank and he’s gone.

Bob's Barn Workshop : Apparently no OSHA agents around.... If you fall, your employer gets sued...

Rick Joneshy : Is it just me or does anyone else believe this guy needs a safety harness. hmm

Paul Wright : I fired a guy for coming on a frame job.He wanted to tie off and wear a repel harness.I told him we didn't have time for that kind of nonsense.It was only a 12/12 my guys walk it with only a chicken board on the bottom row.The next day I fell breaking both wrist;knee cap;elbow and jaw also had to have two plates in my head. Six months later when I got back to work everyone tied off.Only by the grace of GOD AM I ALIVE.

Jan Hanebeck - AmiLoGiXx : These measures are just weird if you're from the other side of the pond. :0

dmaninthewall : Nail guns are so satisfying

mojave stalker : How are you not scared of falling from such heights , are you like those adrenaline junkies that climb towers and stuff lol

Ben H. : Sloppy nailer. How about some precision and pride in workmanship.

cruisin thru : This kid has mastered framing and its concepts. Alot of fun to watch....but scared me sh%tless at some point also. I remember when i was younger doing a lot of the same stuff. lol

James Ledesma : you just walked on that to buy for f****** platforms it scared the s*** out of this that's crazy just afraid something you don't want to take chances like that what you just did this now it's crazy but that's framing I guess

A O : Wow, no safety rope in case of something goes wrong? so brave, so fearless, nice video too master.

AMARUT180 : 13:08 Scariest thing I have seen on Youtube. Balls of Titanium.

iami2007 : Your safety concerns me first rather than house build


Tahir Chaudhry : Wow man, just impressed by your skill, talent and craftsmanship. You provide such great value on this channel. Love your channel bro. I am a contractor in NYC. I watch all your video! Bless up.

JG Luxe : I like your stiletto. I've been doing scaffold for 3 years and I barely bought my stiletto.
