comment Do the nails stick out at all when toe-nailing studs?
A site management comment - your comment seemed to be directed to isherwood. But he does not get notice unless you include an @isherwood text in the comment, usually at the front. This is not needed if you are commenting on a person's question or answer. That isherwood answered you indicates he's monitoring the dialog.

Dryer venting into a crawl space is a bad idea and contrary to building codes in most jurisdictions.

comment Can you have a 90 degree elbow going upward on drain line?
If you add a p-trap to this pipe you have the problem discussed in this question. If this is in place of a p-trap, you have a lot of water to move and risk solids being trapped in the lower horizontal run.

comment Bathroom switch for light and fan
A bit more info: how many cables come into the box? What are the colors of the wires in each cable? Is there a bridge (a piece of brass) between the two brass screws showing in the picture? What is the color of the other screws on the switch? If you could show more pictures of the switch and wires, it would help.

comment Filling hole after removing medicine cabinet
I think the residential building codes used in most jurisdictions require covering insulation with drywall, plaster or wood products of specified fire-resistance specifications.
