Anyway I took a bunch of photos of where everything would be so that we would know what we have behind the drywall. For example, we got pre-wired 7.1 surround sound in the living room and we know that eventually we will mount our tv to the wall. Knowing exactly where those studs will be in relation to the speakers will help us visualize the studs when it comes time to hang the mounting hard.
We also got to see the brick guys in action as they installed our little strip of brick our front. They were nearly done with ours by the time we left after the meeting. We also discovered that the plumber already did our roman shower pipes. Remember earlier this week I talked about requesting higher shower heads because Mike was tall? Well they put them in at 90 inches!!!! Mike measured himself to them and they were way high even for him! He likes them that way, but I worry about the shower heads being too high above the tile. Im also wondering if that will effect water pressure at all being that high. All questions for our pre drywall meeting on Thursday!
On another note I have a quick question for my blogger friends.... I was looking at the sub-floor in various places and noticed some instances of gaps between pieces. Not large gaps but still noticeable to me. Have you heard of this causing problems later on? Part of me thinks it could be an issue, but the other part wonders if this would be better than having the sub-floor pieces rub together making noise or even buckling. What do you think?
Anyway, here are some of the pics I got while Mike was talking surround sound with the guy.

|Markings for where the smoke detector and speakers will go on the ceiling as well as the carbon monoxide detector on the wall. I love how bright the room is right here. I was worried we wouldn't get enough natural light.|
