Good Luck! Hope they don't find anything laugh

I just got done painting two rooms in the basement, working on the tile floor in the bar area and bathroom. Will be so glad when all the flooring work is done, it's killing my knees!

I don't know why, but I am so nervous that something will go wrong. I've been working on this soooo much since I got my permits June 20th, and before that I spent a lot of time finding the drain pipes and breaking up a couple of tons of concrete (literally) to move the bathroom to a better location. I just want to get to and through the drywall stage so that I can get things to a usable state. I want to be done with this part of the project and not have to redo anything.

Inspection was passed! Woohoo.

I just have one minor fix, and it was something done when they built the house. Just need to add a little bit of plywood to a hole in the ceiling under the master bathroom's tub to create a firestop, and I am good. No reinspection. Technically, they would never know, but I've got the materials, so I am just going to do it right!

Congrats.

My question though is.... How does plywood make a good firestop?

Considering that the whole floor is really plywood sitting on top of joists, and then covered with carpet/tile/whatever, it is just to make it so that it isn't a super easy path from the basement to the main floor, or even from becoming a chimney. Obviously if there is a big enough fire, the whole thing is toast (pun intended) anyway.

A few deliveries for me today!
Projector, clips (in bags on top of the projector), 1 pail of Green Glue (missing 1 pail yet), and the speedloader gun.

Congrats on passing the inspection Nick! Also on the deliveries - new stuff is always fun even if it's construction material. Are you going to setup the projector upstairs on a table or something pointing at a bedroom wall? You know, just to make sure it works? (I would enter a toothey grin smiley emoticon here but I fear Bob is watching!)

Ya, I get that. I'm just more used to industrial codes here at a Telco CO. Holes in the steel and fireproof sheetrock have to be plugged with this special fireproof goo or the entire wall has to be replaced. The goo is less pretty but allows you to reuse the holes later, if need be.

I hear you. He said plywood, sealant around the edges, and make sure that it is sealed really well, and it will be almost as good as a solid piece of underlayment.
