    This was poor planning on the framing contractor's part as he/she should have looked at the bathroom layout a little closer and offset the joists or boxed in this area.

    Why plumbers do not stop and get the PM/super involved still baffles me... :mad::confused:

    I have heard of projects where the plumbers and electricians were prohibited from having a chainsaw or sawzall on the project.

    Yes, unfortunately common. "Think twice before cutting a structure ought to be the first rule.". NOT "S__t runs downhill" because sometimes, you have to pump it uphill.)

    Appears to be a CM/multi-prime with no super, only a paper pusher. Did the inspector accept it?

    So "bad" and so true today; we don't need no "stinkin" inspector.
