I was building a house once, with a one piece tub on the second floor, so it had to go in before the framing was done. All framing was up, sheathing all done, had half a sheet of plywood to go on the roof.

I was stripping the 2×4’s off the roof that had held the trusses in place and decided to throw them inside before I put the last piece of plywood on.

The 2×4 were 16’ long and I was dropping them down through the trusses into a bedroom. The very last one hit the floor just right and literally “jumped” through the bathroom wall, went all the way across the bathroom, and went right through the one piece tub.
