The new in-law suite of the Model ReModel 2022 project is ready for insulation, but there's one last critical step in the project before sealing (and concealing) the interior walls and roof.
Contractor Nicole Tysvaer of Symbi Homes has created a full compendium of rough-in photographs, a visual diary of all wall studs and blocking, roof trusses, and the completed mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components installed within the framing of the new attached accessory dwelling unit.
"A detailed catalog of the project just before insulation and drywall can be a valuable resource down the road," explains Tysvaer. "It literally gives the builder and the homeowner the power to see inside the walls of a home. This can be helpful for identifying the source of a mysterious leak, or if the owner wants to install wall-mounted shelves and avoid nicking a plumbing pipe."
