    Hi Folks,

    I've been a building contractor since I resigned my position as a building official in Northern Virginia more than thirty years ago. I've recently taken a position as a compliance manager for a large architectural manufacturer who has decided to try their hand at installing their own products in residences nationwide. So far I've qualified their licenses in thirteen states. I'm hoping you folks will help me refine my understanding of the IBC and the IRC as taking examinations is my primary duty for the present.

    TIA

    Bill

    My bet is that our paths have crossed before.

    Well, other folks have introduced themselves so I might as well. I mostly hang out at the employment forum, my interest peaked there after I was laid off and had to find work. However, back on task, where I use to work, my wife got tired of our driving by buildings and I'd say, "I worked on that one and that one and, Oh, THAT one, let me tell you about all the problems we found there." And typically I'd already told those stories before. So then I get laid off and make a job out of find a job. I end up 2600 miles away at ... an airport. Some things are similar, some things are different (face it, you HAVE to work at an airport to have a reason to do a runway). The things that a similar is that the airport functions like it's own little city. I'm just slightly younger than dirt and (due to the cards life has dealt me) plan on working till I pass away; my wife has other ideas but I'm a grouch when I'm not employed.

    Anyways, I chime in on other forums here from time to time, but mostly you will find me at the employment section here. To all the new folks, welcome. Oh, my real name is Michael.

    Hello!

    Last month I just made Deputy Code Official / Plans Examiner after hired as a Building Inspector 2 years ago. By way of VA Disability Rehabilitation Services, born tone deaf; borderline on hearing comprehension; I made the team on the fact that I did home inspections for 3 years on the side of my full time job; 22 years Master Auto, Heavy-Duty Truck Technician. Was a welder and professional guitarist before that; go figure!

    Hello all. Why do some posts appear so that the entire message is visable in the window while others are only partialy visible so that I need to use the scroll bar to read one line? Is there a setting I need to change? Thanks and Happy Holidays.

    Just don't do it, I say. There are guys who get paid to do that 8-5.
    After a week long hospital codes inspection I find my mind wandering that way, but it hurts.
    Just don't do it!

    Well, I am off to the Forums and Articles section, and may post a question or two, so see you all there.
