    I am roughing in some electrical 1 gang outlets using 12x2 cable. My question is: do the outlets all need to be daisy chained 1 after the other in a serial fashion, or is it possible to power two outlets going in different directions from one master outlet? So do I need to cable all the way...

    A few years back, I bought a house where the plumbing for a first floor bathroom had been roughed-in but no fixtures were installed. The room was framed but no drywall was hung (walls still open). Oddly the room was partially tiled (nice tile, no walls). Access from beneath the first floor is...

    Just like the 3 other posts today on this, I need a little help figuring out my rough in setup. My main issue is what appears to be the Shower/Tub pipe is kinda in the middle of nowhere.

    I just installed a new 12" roughin toilet. It sits about 2 1/4 from the wall and my wife thinks its too far. It measures 12 3/4 from the finished wall to the toilet bolts.
