Hi, I'm Bob Street with Houdini Home Repair on behalf of Expert Village. In this clip, we will carry the beam up the ladder, clamp and shoot the nails. It's bad when your help don't show up, you've got to use a camera. Are you ready? How you feeling? You've got to come my way some. Are you good? According to my marks, I need to go your way. Is that right? According to yours too? Oops, right there according. Okay, me too. Put your clamp on there. We've clamped that off, nailed it, drilled some holes. Put the other one on. Nail gun, we'll just tack this up here so it is secure while we drill it. Tacking this on here right now. Give it some support while we drill and there you go.
