  1. Hi there! Yes my email address is tinadelllic@icloud.com. Please send over anything you'd like and I'll be happy to take a look. Thanks for reaching out!
  2. How many steps with the split level? If there's a staircase you must have a 3-way switched light however there may be a certain number of steps in which that applies (ex: 4+ or more).
  3. I have this little library piece that I made for myself as well. Please peer review it to make sure that my work is correct however it hasn't gotten any kickback during plan reviews so far! Hope it helps and all, please feel free to improve it or redline if it needs correcting! ATTIC-VENTILATION-CALCS-TEMPLATE-NOTES.calibz
  4. I found this handy guide awhile back! Hope it helps anyone following this topic Kristina
  5. I can definitely help you out with this and perhaps advise on the necessary components for your construction documents based on your jurisdiction. Please let me know if you haven't already had your needs met @Jeff_BiltJeff
  6. Hi there, Perhaps this already exists which I'd love to be apart of... Otherwise, any interest in forming a peer review group specifically for plans prepared for building department submittal or have been returned with redline comments for corrections? I know that building departments vary, however it would be a great resource if a trusted circle could openly share for feedback and collaboration. Please share any thoughts! EDIT: Let me know if this isn't the place to share, but in spirit of the post here is a quick/simple comment response template for building department redlines if desired Kristina Morsman tinadelllic@icloud.com Chief X13 COMMENT_RESPONSE_TEMPLATE.docx

  8. Hi Gene, I actually know quite a bit about this topic although it does vary some from state to state. First, did you have a signed agreement for the work that was performed on your house with the general contractor who was on the permit for the project? Second, did he use hire a subcontractor for the work on the roof or perform the work himself? A couple other items, 1) Even if you are beyond the timeframe of the warranty provided that doesn't necessarily mean he's off the hook and its your problem now. 2) What really will need to be determined is if this is a material defect, poor workmanship (bad install), or if there was an outside event that impacted the area which caused the damage. 3) Proving number 2 ^ EDIT: As far as the building department goes, to my knowledge most jurisdictions (nationwide) have essentially qualified immunity for the inspectors and plan reviewers. The building department technically isn't there for the benefit or interests of the homeowner, its there to protect the jurisdiction and ensure your project meets the codes they feel would prevent you from negatively impacting public interests.
