Framing Inspection and Corrections

As part of the construction process, we do a third party framing inspection with a private engineer. They come in and inspect the framing, the truss installation to ensure that it matches the engineered plans, the sheer wall construction, the plumbing top out, the electrical rough, and the HVAC installation.

In this video, I go through some common mistakes that are found and things that should be paid attention to for a smooth framing inspection.
