I'm a newby in the building process (did get The Owner-Builder Book though!) and would appreciate as much advice as I can get at this stage. Thanks a lot. This is a great discussion site. I learned a lot in just an hour of reading.

The electrical inspector came out yesterday, and together we went through the entire house, room by room. It was the most complete inspection I've had on any of my projects. In the end, he wanted an additional receptacle in the garage, and for me to move one smoke detector to the curved ceiling in the main living room.  With those comments he passed my rough in.  Yea! After months of work, something to show for it.


I'll call today for the plumbing inspection.  I have to finish installing three shower sets into the walls and make the final water connection, but it takes several days to the inspectors to arrive after calling in, so I should be finished well in advance.  The sewer lines all check out and he can begin witnessing those.  It'll take him two trips as the different elevations will be tested separately so as not to put undo hydrostatic pressure on the lower sections.

Stucco guys are coming along with the finish coat.  Wind is causing them some trouble.  And they informed me yesterday that they needed the metal roofing moved from where it has been sitting on the backside, so they can set up scaffolding.  Apparently they can't do the final on the back from the forklift or it'll look very bad.  But I won't move the metal as it is subject to kinking without a whole crew of people picking up the 43' pieces.  So they'll have to wait until the roofer comes back and installs it all.  But the rest of the house can be finished.

I'm starting to think about the duct work and will actually begin installing sometime later this week.  There's a lot to do there, including all the stuff for water heaters, kitchen vents, furnace venting, dryer vents etc, in addition to the regular ducts.  Sandra and I are both tired of looking at stud walls in which nothing seems to be happening when actually a lot is.  Waiting to see everything in sheetrock, but that'll be a way out yet.
