Brother Vs. Brother Behind the Scenes: Episode 4

Going into the fourth challenge, Team Jonathan was leading the competition two to one. Not only that, but Team Jonathan had a team of four heading into the colonial remodel, compared to Team Drew’s team of two. To even the playing field, the bros let Team Drew members Melissa and Eric pluck a member from Team Jonathan.

  1. I'd say that any way you slice it (ouch…sorry Adi about the cut) it looks to me like Team Drew put together a winning renovation for Episode 4. Still, this competition is too close to call.

  2. I noticed that Adi cut through the top of the joists to run plumbing under the floor of the bathroom. A major NO NO. Jonathan did not pick up on that. Why not?
    If you reduce the depth of a joist by 50%, it's load bearing capability is reduced by 8 times (2 to the power of 3). Cutting 1 inch out of a 10 inch joist (10%) reduces its load bearing capacity by 27%. Cutting 2 inches out of a 10 inch joist reduces its load bearing capacity by almost 50%.

  3. Well, looks like my last comment was deleted? :( I'm surprised as I did not feel my comments were out of line, and merely my opinion on Eric's design ability and Rick's placement on Drew's team. As I said in the comment that was deleted, I think Rick was the best choice, as he immediately switched hats to Team Drew and went to work. I'm so glad the brother's decided to even the teams, otherwise it would have been an unfair advantage! Looking forward to Episode 5!

    • Finally "bumped" into the comment I thought was deleted…the blog is a bit circuitous. Don't ask me where it is now though :)
