Critical House Details

  • These are details I want to show the building inspector, so we are not called on it during build. These should be in the engineering package, and if not, in an addendum so every detail is transparent and we cannot get called on something if it is approved. It would be difficult for an inspector to disapprove something that has been explicitly approved before, so we should save ourselves time by rebuffing controversy on the spot.
