Well, we passed the framing inspection today, completing the trifecta with electrical (last week), and plumbing (two weeks ago).
A lot has come along in the last few days. HVAC is in tomorrow to run the ductwork into the bathroom and the HT. I compromised a bit on the HVAC due to limitations in the MA code on flex. I think it will work in the end, as we are running wrapped and lined duct with requisit turns, and what not. I think the cost will be in the soffit, where I had hoped to preserve space for base trapping. As it stands, the entire back wall will be eligible for trapping, and portions of the side (I think). Should know in a few days.
Plaster is going up next week, so I need to make my wiring runs. I am debating between running the speaker wire bare, or in conduit. Same for the PJ. Also considering what runs I'll need for the connecting the EQ rack and other spaces (if any).
Can't find any flexible conduit thicker than 3/4" here, so might have to rush order some online if I go that way. Was debating 2" to the PJ, plus 2" to the front stage (3 channels + sub), then either direct runs to the surrounds or put those in 3/4" conduit. I might also run 2" conduit between the EQ Rack and a closet desk I will be adding in the playroom. There is already ethernet between the two, so might not be necessary. The other decision is whether to run cables/conduit to the places in the playroom where I have added cable drops from the EQ rack. I don't see running parallel display, or audio, but you never know. Drywall hangers are coming, and I am out of town for easter. Ack!
