    Default Plumbing rough in before wall straightening?

    HI all,

    Owner builder job.. the carpenters haven;t finished all of the wall straightening (will be done next week or so) but the plumber wants to rough-in on Wednesday...


    I would have thought this should have waited until all of carpentry done but what do I know!

    Will this be OK/typical?

    Thanks for any help. )

    In an ideal world, straighten studs first otherwise noggins, pipework etc will be in the way.

    We always do it after plumbing and elect and right before lining. If you do it before you may well get old mate plumber coming through cutting studs, knocking nogs out, putting nogs in with screws half sticking out etc. I wouldn't guarantee a stud check that early in. If you do it right before lining you can hit up the carpenter if the fixers have any issues at all

    Not good if you have to plane 5-10mm off studs and noggs have already been rebated 35mm. I tend to work in with the chippy/builder, he does the noggs for me after walls are straightened.

    You don't plane 5-10mm off studs. You cripple studs that can be or laminate a trimmer next to a stud to straighten or push it off brick wall and re-tie.

    We never cripple studs Mickey, always plane and pack. I think this is another location specific practice.

    Definately after the carpenters have gone.

    Nothing more dangerous than a carpenter shooting nails through pipes and wires and themselves, not to mention them beating the krap out of pipes "because it was in our way".

    After this thread, carpenters from Adelaide and the Sunshine Coast are out.

    these little overlaps happen all the time, just get the chippies to finish straightening all the walls in the wet areas first.
