Electromen Posted May 10, 2015 Share Posted May 10, 2015 I'm the electrician (sub contractor) for a large builder of custom homes in the $400K to $1.5M range The Architect uses Revit. I receive his drawings in both print and .PDF forms. I enter everything into CA, add the kitchen cabinets using the Kitchen Designer's drawings and meet with the customer for electrical design. They watch a 40" TV while I use the computer, it works very well and the customer is excited to see the house in 3D. This is done usually before the house is framed. On the last house I found a mistake. The master bath ceiling had a 45º angle above the vanity and over the shower. The second floor extended too far into the garage roof. I didn't think too much about it, I just figured my roof was wrong. After all, I'm there for electrical, not framing or house design. We started the wiring Friday and CA was right, there was a 45º angle in the master bath. The framers had notched into the rafters to eliminate the 45 and have a flat ceiling. The local building inspector showed up and turned it down. Now they have to somehow fix it. My question is: Should I mention that I saw this 3 weeks ago? Am I interfering with the architect? Will I end up looking like a know-it-all and have the contractor upset with me? or Should I keep my mouth shut? A jpeg is attached showing the problem.
