Looks good Buz...little overkill on the bulkheads but everything looks true and straight! Don't forget to colour in the bottom of the walls with Pink! lol

* I’d remove the fiberglass at the rim joists, replace with rigid foam:

Need fire-stopping at the joists above the drop ceiling chase covering the girders, and every 10’ along the wall:

Below grade walls:

Need proper sized egress window or door (not through garage) for basement and another/or in a bedroom:

Treated plates for bottom plates…… hard to see. Hangers at cantilevered joists supporting upper stairs? Steel straps for stair stringers to joist above. Other goodies:

Be safe, Gary
