comment What's this stud type called and how should I drill for hanging a heavy item?
While a little late but still feasible , talk to your builder about the mount you plan on using. They can install blocking or framing that will make attaching the frame where you want it much easier.

comment Any suggestions for repairs of nasty cracks in my walls and the door?
+1 for the 15 minute mud (also called Dura-Bond). Don't mix more than you can use in 10 minutes. I have repaired doors by removing the door knob, glue and screw a piece of 3/16 lauan plywood to the door face. Prime and paint, then reinstall the knob.

If it will also be your shop, consult with your electrician about increasing the number and placement of outlets and individual circuits befor the insulation goes up.

comment Might I have 2 vents for my gas dryer?
Is the dryer is old enough that it has a pilot light? The lint may have blocked the vent door open. A large gust of wind may have blown out the pilot light.

comment How to vent a 2nd clothes dryer?
I checked the installation manual for several popular brands. They all require the use of a back draft damper for each unit when venting multiple dryers in a common duct. ( another expense)
