Framing inspection comes with a nice compliment

Today this basement finishing project passed framing inspection! Considering how many years it took to get to this point, this is a huge milestone.

Framing in a basement is a mixture of metal stud walls on the perimeter and wood stud walls in the center.

What’s more, the city building official gave me a nice compliment:

“I just have to say that you are doing really incredible work. You say you don’t do this for a living, but I’ve never seen professional carpentry of this quality. Really superb precision and craftsmanship. Very nice. Excellent job!”

All that remains is electrical, drywall, paint, flooring, and trim carpentry.
