WRT the lamps I have two Kaiser Idell lamps and an AJ. I like both, but the Kiaser a bit more.

A lot of times they are used to reduce the butchering of studs when long horizontal vent runs are required. Nice work, San Francisco holds their plumbers to high standards.

edit: that floor drain has a trap under it you can't see it but it's there trust me

Yep, the contractor said it's copper to minimize the amount that the studs get cut.  I asked if there were going to reinforce the studs, maybe with one turned sideways in the corner, but he said there was no need.  There isn't a room above this room, so hopefully he's right.  Glad you like the work.  The plumber's from the East Bay.

 

Would the trap help prevent waste from the toilet from bubbling up out of the floor drain?

After posting, I searched "wavy lines, vent switch" and found that it is indeed a humidity detector.

Automatic vent control? Thats a pretty cool idea.

Came home to find a huge hole in the backyard and the perimeter of it all rebarred and formed out. Equipment should be dropped off tomorrow and plumbing to start Friday or Monday.

Im confused as to how using copper allows for smaller holes to be cut in the studs? Diameter is the same, no?

The walls of the copper pipes are thinner.

All types and sizes of copper "water tube" are uniformly 1/8 " larger in od than their nominal (called) size i.e 2" copper= 21/8"
"Standard pipe "varies in od according to wall thickness, nominal size being id,ranging from 1/4 to 3/4 .
I'm sure you are totally confused at this point so I won't venture into the world of schedule 40,80,160 xh,xxh od ss tubing................

What service do you use that has good news programs? Or are you just using the News Program's Website to stream?

Tell me, does it look like something like this:



Is it leather? Black leather?

Do any parts adjust or move around to change it into something else? Was "lumbar" included in the product description?

Foo, there comes a time in a mans life when good lumbar support is more important than impressing nerds on the internet. Truth be told, that Knoll sofa you posted a few years back looks like a form of torture.

I look forward to being a crotchety old man with a bad back and a beautiful sofa.

Depends on the efforts one needs to make to get that good looking sofa in the first place. When my wife and I moved in together she brought along this white couch from her last place along with a bed and some other stuff. She planned to replace it with some modern pieces and we bought or I built practically every other piece of furniture in the house. She formulated ideas on what she wanted and I talked her down and suggested to take a slower approach so that we don't wind up buying things to later regret.

Then one day, one of her friends (woman love to trade barbs) called the ugly thing 'ugly' and said that it actually brought down the look of every other piece of furniture in the room....causing her to basically stand hard against replacing that ugly thing for 7 years!

Finally, after 7 years of negotiating, early this year I bought a Milo Baughman sofa with approving nod....and just as I thought I was finally rid of that horror show it lands in the garage where it stayed for another 9 months....until finally I convinced her to let it go. I cheered as a young(er) couple loaded it into their minivan and drove off.

This entire time I endured answering the question of why one would buy a LC2 sofa in custom leather and put it in my study while the living room had the famous white leather couch.
