I spent hours and hours on the website and I know it saved me many thousands of dollars and just as many headaches. I'm extremely proud of my house and have already been asked to put it in a home show. I estimate that I have amassed at least $175,000 equity for my efforts.

I'm supposed to get a framing and plumbing rough-in today.  Also called the head inspector on the new service entrance to see if that was a separate inspection or not.  Left a message but he hasn't returned my call. Will try again today.


Finished setting up the framing for the tray ceiling in the kitchen with Todd's help last night, but as he was putting in a couple final nails, he accidentally hit the drain line for the master tub with a nail. Very ;-(  .  I first thought it was going to be a mess to fix.  The pipe had split, not just punctured.  But, it appears the split stopped just short enough of a fitting that allowed me to get a coupling on the remaining good piece to repair.  I'll find out this morning if it actually did, when I test before the inspection.  If it had gone further, I would have had to rip out significantly more of a complicated pipe section.  Things happen. We all make mistakes.

  I had Cassidy go around and nail electrical outlet boxes around the walls.  I started setting some of the multi-gang light switch receptacles.  Todd and I will start running furring strips at 16" centers on the kitchen ceiling this afternoon.  This is to be able to come up with a flat surface to hang the sheetrock on.  The ceiling joists are pretty close to being on center themselves, but not quite, and there is enough deflection on some that I could end up with a wavy surface without being able to shim as necessary.

Crossing my fingers on the inspections today.  There are a couple areas I expect I may get some questions on the framing.  Such as where are the calcs for the beam?

Tray ceiling framing detail. Two steps are being used. A bit difficult to see here but this is the best shot. Will be more visible once sheetrock is on.
