THANK GOD! I was just complaining to the wife the other day how hard it was to find a $12,000 faucet.

Looks like a simple stamped piece to me but what do i know.
This won't work with a new toilet but if you are reinstalling a toilet, you can use some of the old wax ring to hold your flange bolts upright. I also concur with the inspection of the toilet but it isn't always foolproof. I had a toilet that showed no visible signs of a crack but it leaked and continued to do so after several removals and reinstalls. In the end, it was an incomplete glazing that was weeping water out of the trap and could only be found by putting food coloring in the bowl and then not using the toilet for a couple of days. You could see the color stain where the water was weeping through the unglazed trap.
Not a bad solution but I think I just would have thrown a couple of more 2x10's across the two stem walls and laid down a piece of playwood. Then you call the wifey and tell her to hold the drywall with her head. Your way avoided a potential argument but mine would have been quicker and allowed for makeup se.................
Blown in Cellulose or Spray Foam would have better than fiberglass bats.

Getting a little personal aren't we?
I would think contractors would also want Errors and Ommissions coverage.
$300 bucks just for hinges to hide a coat closet???????? Time you throw in the extra labor we are talking a grand at least to hide your coats. And within six months, your door will give itself away by the grimey hand prints at the push point.
Nice work but it seems ample proof that some people have more money than sense.
Try opening an outswing door carrying a bag of groceries and a baby. Outswings are great if your hands are empty...not so much if you are carrying things into the house.
Of course the counter argument is that inswing doors are a pain when you are carrying thing OUT of the house but the difference is you have a climate controlled, clean and dry place to set things down to open the in swing door.
BTW, there are screen applications you could employ on an outswing door. Roll screens are what I am thinking about in particular but there is no reason beyond asthetics that you couldn't mount even a regular screen door inboard of an outswing door.
The bigger risk I see with PEX is the massive amount of lines being run by plumbers who have in the past shown little regard for what they do to the structure they drill holes through.
