We were still framing one complete home per day.
Same here the inspector usually doesn't make it out on site till the house is at least half sided. The roofer are usually out within 4-6 hours of the roof decking being done. Schedules are tight!Yeah, around here rough structure inspection can be done after all roofing and siding/cladding is done...
Not familiar with the term "dead plate".Mixed bag out west. I see most residential framers sheathing after plumb and line. Could be a product of concrete quality of slab on grade or neglect in shimming joist/rim/sole plate of raised floor.
I grout all plates before framing and bolt the sole plate down, frame with a dead plate and shear all walls flat. Stack frame. A bit of work in the beginning but it pays dividends on commercial and multi story structures.
But even then, at some point, have to get out there and install fillers, nail off flyers etc. can usually catch that when the skins are going up and tight schedule inspections to align with the completion.

Does the dead plate stay or is it removed once the wall is up?
