What makes you think a building inspector knows what the codes are? Your little 'as a licensed...' blah, blah was laughable. After 32 years as a 'licensed' builder I will state for the record that I have two options when it comes to inspectors. I can waste lots of time trying to teach you idiots what is proper...........or I can smile in your face and give you your bribe. The end!
I have met a grand total of one building inspector that knew what they where doing in my life. And she (yep, it was a chick) quit after just a few years cause she couldn't hamdle the corruption. DON'T go 'expert and high and mighty' cause I will tell the truth about you!
To the fellow using a 3 in. DWS to hang a picture: “Stupid is as stupid does.”
As a licensed, independent, building inspector, a word of advise: Don’t rely on Code Enforcement inspectors as the pinnacle of building knowledge. Do your own homework. For building projects, consult the IBC (International Building Code), for plumbing the IPC (International Plumbing Code) and for electrical, the NEC (National Electrical Code). These are all tough reading, but it’s worth it. Then and only then should you ask the local code enforcement for any additional requirements for your specific local. Have them write you up a list, on official stationary, then have them sign it. Then there’s no questions asked.
To Gary Kilinger: A friend did the same thing. He’s German so he’s not used to seeing anything other than “I” or “O” on switches. Suffice-it-to-say, when he plugged it in, it took off and flew across the living room and blew right through the dining room doors before it ran out of cord. I laughed so hard I thought I was going to wet myself.
To Ronzy: Try using Aguila .22 Super Colibri instead of a .25. In a bolt action rifle, they’re virtually silent and will do the trick up to about 50 ft.
