I"ll put nail plates everywhere.
I'm going to assume the gas lines were up to code when the house was built. Plus that fitting is sort of accessible (because of the panel that opens giving access to the junction box) and there have to be other fittings in the house which are totally inaccessible.
re green board. Damn. I guess I should pull it out. that will be painful but it would really stink if I had to redo this in 2 years. Instead of running more joists I guess I could run cross members between the joists? I put some in but only at the joints, every 4'.
ADDED: We live in a very dry climate but are paranoid about mold because my wife is pretty allergic. There is another cross member supporting the fan that I could find. I'm wondering if maybe we could get by leaving it up?
