    I will be building my own home. I will be using 2x6 24" on center for the outer walls. The inside walls will be 2x4 16" on center, but no spray foam, so not worried about them. I will be using closed cell spray insulation but not sure how to proceed with the rough-in for the electrical and do...

    The original owner of our house had the layout changed from the standard design and we need some help with deciphering what's what so we can try to figure out what the new idea was that he was envisioning. Can someone help with identifying what each of these are for? Thanks in advance!!

    I am roughing in a basement that already has some existing lights and receptacles. I plan to add to and alter what exists, in addition to running some new circuits. This includes, in a few spots turning an existing single gang into a double or triple gang setup. It's my understanding that I...

    I will be installing a utility sink with a 2" drain line running approximately 10' to the outside of the slab. I plan to tie bath sink and shower drains into the same 2" drain line. I've seen pictures that show the connections to the main (in this case the 2") drain line (from sink and shower)...

    Hi, we are finishing our basement and would like to remove the rough-in as we do not need another washroom and it is in the worst possible place. One concern is that if we remove and cap the vent stack we will affect the plumbing in the rest of the house. How do you tell if it is tied in to the...

    Looking for advice regarding an unfinished insulated above-ground room that we're looking to finish off. This is a Ryan Homes Townhouse. The back half of the first floor has been unfinished since we purchased the home. As I already said the room is already insulated but there is no electrical...

    Hi, I am looking to finish my basement and I am having trouble wrapping my head around the piping (and options) I have in the basement for a bathroom. I am including several pics because my explanations of what I think I see may only confuse the issue. I have labeled the things as I understand...

    Hi guys I'm in the project of finishing my basement and the builder of the house did all the rough-in for a bathroom in a basement. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what is what and how to frame the walls around it. Here is a picture of my current rough-in. I'm assuming the...

    Hi, I'm just getting ready to renovate my basement, starting with the bathroom first. I've attached three pictures, the first one showing the toilet rough-in with (I'm assuming) the toilet vent behind it. The second picture showing a pipe coming down from the toilet vent and into the ground...

    my book says keep 4" between the hot and cold pipes roughing in for a bathroom sink. however, i am inclined to leave more space, maybe even as much as twice that much, because there will be 1.5" PVC in between them and i don't wanna keep it to close to copper to avoid the danger of melting PVC...

    We are remodeling the basement in our new-to-us 1908 house and want to remove the old sewer ejector installed by the previous owner. Unfortunately this means we have to install a new sewer line, lower than the existing one. I currently plan to pour 3" of new concrete slab anyway to flatten/level...

    I can't seem to find the conventions / standards for roughing in water / drain lines for say a 5 foot or 6 foot vanity with two sinks. How do you calculate where on the wall you want the lines to emerge? Thanks

    I just got a central vac unit and our house is roughed in. As I was hooking it up I relized the top floor is hooked up to the garage (where the unit is). The main floor outlet goes directly to the basement. The two outlets are not connected so I spoke with our builder about it and they said I...

    I am finishing more of my basement and am not planning on doing the bathroom down there any time soon, but I need to do the framing all now (including the bathroom). The problem is I am unsure of what the different openings / pipes down there are for and what spacing I need to maintain around...

    Hi everyone, I'm finally getting around to finishing my basement and I have a couple of questions about the fireplace rough-in. The attached photo will show you what I'm working with. The builder insulated about 3' down from the ceiling. I glued 2" foamboard insulation to the walls below...
