Prepping for the predrywall meeting in two days
Pre-drywall is scheduled for 7:30 on Thursday morning, so tonight we went to the house to go over everything to be totally ready. Forgot the camera, unfortunately. I looked over locations of outlets, switches, cable, etc. I'm thinking I'm going to ask for the cable in the living room moved over a few feet to fit with our planned furniture layout. All others look pretty good. I checked over wiring to be sure the sheathing wasn't torn while pulling through studs, all looked good. I checked to be sure all the ductwork was sealed properly between fittings, again all looked good. Looked to be sure the fittings on the PVC piping had a good amount of PVC cement, again looked good. The flex exhaust off the one bathroom fan upstairs is pitched kinda awkward. It takes a sharp turn up, then hangs off a strap under the roof truss, then heads outdoors. My thought is because the attic space is cold, the air in the flex duct will get cold, the moisture in the air from the shower will condense, and because of the sharp pitch up will drip back down once the fan is off. I'm going to see if they can run it flatter along the ceilling rather than how they have it now. I'll try to take a picture next time I'm there. If anyone else ran into odd things for their pre-drywall meeting and has any advice I'm all ears.
