Document Your House During Construction

Stud wall with plumbing and wiring visible.

Documenting the construction process when building a new house can be a valuable resource for future renovations. Photograph every wall and ceiling after the plumbing and wiring have been roughed in but before the insulation and drywall are installed.

Include a yardstick in the photo to allow you to gauge distances and label each picture on the back.

Also, photograph and mark on your survey the location of outside wires and pipes that are buried.
