First one you learn, second one will equal out time wise, typical 3000 sq ft house is an extra 1/2 role of wire.Inner10 said:How are they easier to wire and plumb?
I have done that for a builder. When we did it it's to eliminate the need for a window well on lots that are really close together. I do think they need to come up with a better system though it gets pretty bouncy there. And all they wanted was one 2x4 going across the center to carry the sheet. It's normally a 6'x3' span I doubled up 2x6 and put in hangers in the middle.knucklehead said:So when I look in that window , do I see the joist?
Yes, and the windows have a 1/2" receiving jamb for the dry wall to go into. Ill try and take a picture of a finished one some time soon.Sounds like the ceiling gets rocked like usual but then wrapped around the joist nearest to the window rather than running straight across to the wall with it.
I've never seen this detail finished but I can't see it not looking weird. It almost seems like an inverted bulk head. Like I mentioned before when I have done this it is to eliminate the window well. I see that you have a window well there. What's your reason for doing it this way?MultiCon said:Yes, and the windows have a 1/2" receiving jamb for the dry wall to go into. Ill try and take a picture of a finished one some time soon.]
I've wired many, I had a builder that exclusively built ICF homes. I put a bolt in the bar of a little electric chainsaw and cut a trench for my wires.First one you learn, second one will equal out time wise, typical 3000 sq ft house is an extra 1/2 role of wire.
Plumbing is almost a non issue, only thing on outside wall is usually kitchen sink vent, sometimes washer/laundry tub vent...in Canada
Thanks!Nice clean jobsite Multicon! Your framing looks very tight. Why all the radiant foam board?
