DCP03254.JPG (137249 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - We passed the "OK To Cover" electrical inspection today!  This means we are all cleared to start sheet rocking.  This picture shows Jeffrey holding the signed off electrical permit.  This is the next to the last electrical inspection.  The only one left will be our "final" when the home is complete.

DCP03256.JPG (135179 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - What builder do you know that has a bin for recycling on the job site?  Further, what builder do you know that has an over flowing recycle bin and a nearly empty garbage?  That would be us.

DCP03258.JPG (123307 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - This is a great picture of the "fire stop" that is required above the fireplace.  The fire stop is made by first attaching  3/4 inch plywood to the trusses above the fireplace, and then covering the plywood with 5/8 inch sheetrock (also know as gypsum board).  The fire stop is required so that if (heaven forbid) fire gets outside the fireplace, it will not be able to easily go up into the attic.  Many people think that sheet rock is just a great material to easily cover studs to make a solid wall.  In fact sheet rock is used because it does not burn easily.  For a stick built home it protects the wood framing members from catching on fire easily if a fire starts in a room.  Its also a major help in preventing a fire from spreading in a home.  Learn more at the Gypsum Association website.   

DCP03260.JPG (104745 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - Many builders do not go to the trouble or expense of having lights or an electrical outlet installed in the attic.  Not us.  Even though this picture is dark, it shows the newly installed attic lights, which will probably come in handy some time in the future.  The switch for these lights is right above the attic access, as is an electrical outlet.

DCP03262.JPG (146239 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - Looking very much like a creature from the deep, this picture shows one of our multi-port ventilators mounted in the attic.  The black tubes connected to it are the insulated flexible ducts which can be seen going off to their various locations in the home.

DCP03264.JPG (162968 bytes)    June 24, 2005 - Friday - This shot shows where the attic access is framed out in the ceiling of the garage.  Having access to the attic is required by code and the framed out opening must be a minimum of 22 inches wide by 30 inches long.
