new construction
I am having a house built and they started building before my initial meeting with the general contractor. so I am worried they may have messed something up already. the slab is poured and my question is for a dual sink in the master bathroom - what needs to come out of the slab as far as plumbing?

Please go back before asking any more questions and add your loction to your profile!!
Just go to quick links and edit.
Why what's there?
Sure sounds really strange there already building it and you had no meeting with him.

a 1.5" or 2" drain line and maybe h & c water lines

so just one pipe is all that is needed? is this a drain? and one drain can handle the two sinks?

is this house in an area where there are building codes

azhiker60 03-14-2013 07:34 PM

yes it is

joecaption 03-14-2013 07:36 PM

Yes, only one drain needed.
Not the right sink but same idea.

just one plastic pipe, I did not get the diameter. yes I was shocked that I did not meet and they started putting the forms down for the foundation/slab. the reason I asked is after I did meet with him he was surprised about the option of the added sink in the master. it did not come with the house and I added it. that is why I am curious.

Never once have I ever heard of someone dealing one on one with the GC long before building a house.
Who did you contract with to build it?:eek::eek:

did you not get a blue print showing what was going in at the location that is in question

The design professional should issue a construction change director to the general contractor, and it is up to the general to make sure the subs know what to do. You cant just walk in and make changes. There should have been a meeting where you list the options you want, they give you the change in cost and time, etc.

it is a model home and all of this was decided about 3 weeks ago. I was just told that before they started building that I would meet with the builder to go over the modifications that I paid for. so that is why I am questioning the sinks because they formed it before I met with the builder. and again he was a little surprised that the extra sink was in the master.

Don't take this the wrong way, but what good will it do to meet with the gc if you don't know that a sink needs a drain?

Just tell them what you want in the house, and if it is not there, don't buy the house.

there are double sinks in my parents' master bath, it only has one drain line hooked to both sinks, and four water supply lines coming in, two for each sink.
