Gentlemen, do not take offense that I say evil trust me he is not someone who a decent person would say he is just and remember he said I can make it hard for you to build your house. That gentlemen is abuse of power, and I am not saying other things he has said.
Nevertheless, please excuse me for the sharing of my personal problem with said person it is ended. I have the highest regard for the profession just not him.
Many good pointer's I am studying now. As for the comment about just paying you sound very silly saying that I would hope you may teach me something else its not the money please take it to heart---Bill Ernst end of discussion. soils engineering report/geotechnical maybe. These are suppose to be preliminaries the DE should have just said no, yes /// change simple. He said no this is not the way it;s done you can't use piers , the house is to high to big and nothing about the frost line. then he said I am not signaling you out Oh! three times.
Much appreciated from all please can someone tell me how to download here the plans ,pdf that might help. keep it coming I am learning.
Shouldn't that say "maximum capacity of 1500psf"" and "more than 1500 psf”?I NY you can design your own home up to 1500 sf without an engineers stamp. If you submitted plans showing the loads imposed on the piers with a footing pad of sufficient size to carry the load, I would have no problem accepting the plans. Without soils analysis you would have to use the minimum capacity of 1500 psf unless your building official has determined the soil capacity to be less than 1500 psf, in which case you would need a soils evaluation. If calculating the loads is beyond your abilities then you will need professional help.
Let's start with this:
https://www.dos.ny.gov/dcea/ (Official NYS Code Webpage)
Then make sure your code official is indeed acting legally in that capacity:
https://www.dos.ny.gov/DCEA/certceolist.html (list of certified code officials/inspectors)
Then, start the process of gathering information for an appeal
https://www.dos.ny.gov/dcea/reg_off_cty.html (contact info for appeal process)
Here is the appeal form in PDF:
No one here is going to give you legal advice on a situation when we are completely in the dark and not the AHJ. You can have your design professional appeal this with a lot more luck than you trying.
If you want to post a PDF copy of your blueprints for a better response then please let me know and I will help you do that.
