You know they designed the attic ventilation to take care of this!!!!!!comments (3) October 18th, 2010 in Project Gallery
The pipe in the middle of the second picture is a fireplace flue! This photo was taken at the "meter release" inspection after drywall is installed, etc. The fireplace this is connected to wasn't there when the framing and MEP rough-in inspection was done on this new home. The plans showed an optional fireplace, but it wasn't selected at the time of initial review and approval.
I hope the installer just ran out of time and/or material and intended to come back to finish.
