New plumbing rough in’s

Post by HouseSoldier » Mon Oct 15, 2018 12:56 pm

Do the rough in’s of a newly constructed home with a unfinished basement come already vented with the traps for the tub and toilet ?

Doubtful that the traps are there, more likely you've simply got the line run and capped at end point. The venting should be there. Have you talked with your builder?

The toilet drain will not have a trap as the trap is part of the toilet design.
A tub or shower drain should have the trap already below the floor and just a vertical pipe coming up from it.

Subfloor and framing

Post by HouseSoldier » Sat Oct 20, 2018 8:14 am

Hello.... I have a new home with a unfinished basement, which I am finishing myself. My question is, what should I do first, framing or a subfloor or do I even really need a subfloor ?

I would say that the need of a subfloor will depend on how well the existing floor was finished and what you intend to put down as a floor covering.

Subfloors are generally not used commonly in new construction since the new concrete floors are in good condition. Nothing saying you couldn’t however.
