    Looking good!
    Take lots of pictures of the strapping while it’s visible. When it comes to homeowners insurance that will qualify for a discount.
    In my case, Homesite required a notarized document by a licensed general contractor. You may want to hit up your contractor for that doc before he disappears 😀

      Clips and strapping, roof nailing. If you look at Florida code you'll be disgusted by all the "continuous load path" stuff required.

                Yes, I guess they'll do that when they do the decking.

                      That style is exactly what my wife and I would like. Not over-the-top big, but still classy.

                      Looks great!

                        Yeah I need to get in there and have a clean up, electricians are supposed to finish today so I'll have a clean up when there done.

                      I would question the methods of the HVAC installer when it comes to cutting those floor joists. Are they pre engineered with holes for duct to pass through or is the installer just going at it willy nilly with a sawzall to make his job easier?

                        I thought the same but the builders foreman was there with him so I guess it OK, if it causes a problem it's on them, we have a warranty. .

                        the penetration appears to be midspan of the joist which means most of the load is bending rather than shear. As such the edges of the joist are more critical for strength than dead center. I'd still check with the engineer/trussjoist manufacturer.

                        Will do, thanks for pointing that out.

                      Looking good! Like the double sided fireplace.
                      Dont forget the 220V/20A drop for the lift!
