    Good morning/afternoon-

    Been lurking about a year or so. Registered to be able to see some of ICE's pics in the Average Day thread that were behind the registration wall. Finally posted today in the thread about rent drops in a fire rated door or wall.

    I've got a couple year HVAC experience (including installs, service, gas fitting and duct cleaning), a little apartment maintenance, a year as an admin for a construction company, some miscellaneous management stuff and currently on year 11 as a property/community manager.

    I stumbled into opening a low-income apartment building in 2008 and was a site manager for 6 years, did a year as executive support/special projects and then found my way into condo/HOA managment for the last 3+ years.

    I had some code questions that led me here, and I can't find the exit door.

    Had found some good discussions on code-related issues in my googling and recently decided to share my own, which was very helpful! So here I am.

    I'm an Architect, working exclusively on multi-family construction, essentially as in-house architect for a developer. Our forte seems to be 5 story Type III apartments over Type I parking garages, though chasing dollars is pushing us toward Type II and beyond it appears. I'm a Kansas State grad of 2010, framed houses for a couple years before I could land a big kid job (though I never really have grown up). I'm happily married and have a toddler that looks and acts just like me. I love Jesus, solving puzzles, learning, reading, and disc golf.

    I'm in the middle of one project under construction which uses 2011 Ohio Building Code (2009 IBC). The rest of my projects are 2016 California Building Code.
