UPDATE 5: Electrical & Plumbing
It’s time to rough-in the plumbing and electrical for this Twin Cities Home Addition!
What do we mean when we talk about roughing-in the plumbing and electrical? It means we create paths in the framing for the electrical cables, water supply, and drain pipes to run through, and then make all of the planned connections. At this stage, no fixtures (like faucets and decorative light fixtures) are installed yet.
All of the plumbing and electrical placement is planned in the design phase of the project, well before construction begins. In the Kitchen and Mudroom portion of the Addition, we’ll be roughing-in electrical for all of the lighting, switches, and outlets. We’ll create pathways for the Kitchen plumbing. We’ll also rough-in plumbing and electrical in the new 1st-floor Powder Room and the 2nd-floor Bath. The 2nd-floor Homeowner’s Bedroom electrical plan calls for outlets, switches, a ceiling fan, and decorative wall sconces. Once the rough-ins are complete, we’ll be ready to move on to insulation and drywall.
