yes! yes! they did! i'm not sure if they do it to all the houses or just did it to mine cause i bugged him about it. there are still some spots where i hear noise when i step on it. but that's the noise of the subfloor hitting something underneath like the duct or pipe. i'm hoping that will go away when they install the final flooring.

that's just one layer of the plywood - nothing to worry about.

actually it might go all the way through. the plywood is only 3/4 inch thick and the hole goes pretty deep. i put my finger in there and didn't go through but there was alot of dirt and dust in there. if i would have dug down with my finger, i might have gone all the way through or pretty close. i hope DRC is right, that they will fill this in before tiling over.

did they try to open the hole for the duct vent? At my house, they started to cut the hole for the duct vent and then found out that they can't put the duct vent there because the kitchen window was under it. I was told they would patch it up so we will see.
