    The job was a pex re-pipe. I took this picture because there is a swimming pool that is accessed by the gate.

    A level headed guy might have done it differently.

    As long as it sheds water....it can get pretty wild.

    The vent caught them by surprise.
    They nailed a strap tp the barge rafter....and split it. How did they get this far into it without getting fired?

    Worse that splitting the trim is leaving it that way.

    Naw, Brent is too smart a guy to use OSB. I want to know how Tiger gets up there to take these pictures? Around here inspectors are not allowed on roofs, maybe you are firing up the old T-6 and flying him over to take thse pictures?

    Usually by ladder. I crawl through windows. Climb trees. if you leave me alone, I will come down on my own. I sense a drone in my future.

    How about making a banner to tow around neighborhoods saying that? Although most banner planes are PT-17s, slower.

    An inspector wrote a correction to replace the cord and plug the served a furnace with a disconnect switch. The contractor did this. Both the inspector and contractor are wrong. We have allowed a 20 amp rated cord and attachment plug to serve as the disconnect for a furnace.....for years.

    [​IMG]

    I was there for a follow-up inspection. I wrote a correction to restore the receptacle and cord....along with six other new corrections. The next day there was a note on my desk to call the contractor. The next day was too soon to call him. He might need a week to calm down.

    The job is replace the slider ... remove wood siding ... install lath and stucco. They called for a lath inspection. They haven't replaced the slider because.....well I'm not sure why. They expected me to access the balcony from the step ladder.

    There should be a farm system similar to baseball. That way I could send contractors back to the minors when they need more training.

    This should generate a fine and suspension with a stint in training camp of at least six months.

    Too bad you could not give them a swift kick in the keester while wearing steel toed boots. :p But that would bring out comments about jack booted thugs....

    Hey Tiger, maybe you should go inspect these since these people can't afford code compliant homes,

    The only violation I see is an extension cord across the bike path.
