I am new and have already written this twice but lost the text both times. My contractor frame walls in my basement but left almost 3/4 inch gap between the wall and the joist. The nails are visible in the space. His reason is he ordered the lumber the wrong size. He tried to stack to 2x4's horizontally over the top of the framed wall to bridge his significant space issue.
I have tried to upload an image but have failed repeatedly, I should be able to figure that out considering I am a web developer...
Is it normal to have a space between your framed wall and the ceiling.
Is there any reason you would not tie your laundry drain into the existing drain in the utility room? It is a new construction home. They seem to be digging holes looking for the main drain line. Can't you just pull the blueprints of the house and know exactly where the drain lines are?
Thank in advance!
