    Stumbled across this forum searching for info on pool gates & panic hardware.

    So nice to find a forum where I can ask job-related questions.

    I've been doing pool engineering for about a year here in FL and I'm finding just how much fun it is for my plans to get reviewed by the County building inspector, dept. of health, fire code....etc.

    Maybe his/her parents were Johnny Cash fans - A Boy Named Sue.

    According to our HR Dept. we can identify as the opposite gender at will. I could wear a dress to work and if anybody laughs at me I could file a lawsuit. Strange but true....

    Caution rules the day ... so Jeff, that boy named Sue may have a crush on you.

    Hope this is the right place for intro. Not an inspector. I am going to be my own GC with an advisor. I started down this path 2 years ago. I have learned alot so far. Read thru most of 2012 IRC. The Energy Code, Plumbing. Span tables. Serveral emails to my building inspector for clarifications. Attened log home university.
    All the details on the house are in my profile

    Hi there. I'm a soon-to-be homeowner & am wondering where is the best place to ask about specific building/fire codes. My husband wants to put a door at the top of the stairs in our new house & I'm not so sure that it's a safe idea. Any help would be appreciated.

    The best place to post that question is in the Residential Building Codes section.

    I can not remember the section whether it is IRC or fire code. Yes a door is required but can not open into the stairs

    Hilti and 3M offer good trade classes you should attend, there is also a Firestopping Association you should Google.
