No major strain on the pipr.

Just trying to verify.

Sheet rock for balloon frame wall

As I was nearing the end of my bathroom project, I noticed that the wall for the vanity was bowed enough that I felt it needed to be fixed. Previous work was so bad that I tore down the sheet rock...

I'd remove the line and staple it after. Damn lines are why I had to tear such a large hole anyway.
