Plumbing and framing
This week the plumbers finished their second rough in. That means they connected our well and pump to the house so we have water, put the plumbing vents through the roof, and did the water tests for the tubs and shower. I even tried out one of the tubs to cool off from the sweaty weather. (No picture of that, though, since this is a family rated blog)
With the plumbers out of the way, the framer (me) built the chases covering the air conditioning ducts where they pass through bathrooms and closets where they couldn't be hidden as they go from the air handler to the two wings with their small attics to reach the rooms in the house. This had to be done before the electrician could come to do his rough, which should happen next week when he gets back from vacation. The first picture is of the AC ducts going through a corner of the upstairs bathroom before I've built the chase so you'll be duly impressed.
I also patched two holes in the floor after they changed the location of AC ducts at our request. Note that you can't see where the hole was so you should feel perfectly safe walking around the upstairs.
