The rough-in framing and electrical inspection went really well. The inspector said that he hopes to be the one to come back and see it finished up,
I discovered something:
I fitted my first piece of plywood, before installing the insulation. When I went to install the plywood, my receptacle cutout was off side-to-side by about a half on am inch.
It seems that the insulation bowed out the stud in the middle. Not every stud is fastened in the middle.
They will be now! I wanted to pass this on. It is only 1/2" wider that the spacing. Very common, but on the outside walls the studs are fastened to the outer sheating. My walls are mounted independently against the outer, metal walls. They are captured/fastened at the floor and top plate. It's the middle that is not. causing the bow.
I will attach each stud now, in the middle using some angle iron with some holes drilled to accept screws.
Learning as I go.
