I am buying a home right now and last weekend I did my home inspection on it. While under the home checking everything out I noticed that a 2" DWS line disappeared into a main beam. After moving the insulation aside I discovered that the plumber when he was doing the rough in drilled through a 4"x8" beam leaving about 1/4" to 1/2"of wood on each side. This beam supports a hall wall for two stories. As I expected the beam is cracked and will be repaired with new supports. (See pictures) Sometimes I think the framing should be inspected after the electricians and plumbers do their rough in.
