Flywheel - Building Codes - Hail to the Building Inspector

Love them or hate them, building inspectors are a necessity to ensuring the minimum life, safety and structural (and now green code) requirements are being met in residential construction. The main goal of a building official is to make sure the general public is protected. That is not the owner of the home or the builder but the general public over the life span of that building. Unfortunately some are either overwhelmed with work, controlled by superiors or tend to like the authority too much and may rub the home owner or builder the wrong way. Liability concerns may also trump what can or not be done in your area. This is especially true if you are trying to do something unique or beyond the basic requirements of codes.

I've found one good example of what you may be or have experienced with a building inspector. HAIL THE BUILDING INSPECTOR
