    Tempered glass behind toilet

    It's not the device that is the problem. It is the wet floor caused by getting in and out of the tub or shower. If you slip on the wet floor, the 5' code prevents you from sticking your hand through the window as you fall. Maybe the inspector comes from a home where the toilet floor gets wet.

    THE best digital sketching App

    Can you get this to snap your lines to crisp straight lines as you draw? Once a sketch is complete, can you import it to Chief for use in a meaningful way? I.e. a tile layout etc. Andrew, try looking into a program called "Catchbook" by Siemens. It does what you are asking for.

    Complex Macro Request, is this possible?

    Joe, Item 1 - Exposure Category: What are Conditions B,C & D ? Exposure A. Large city centers with at least 50 percent of the buildings having a height in excess of 70 feet (21336 mm). Use of this exposure category shall be limited to those areas for which terrain representative of Exposure A prevails in the upwind direction for a distance of at least 0.5 mile (0.8 km) or 10 times the height of the building or other structure, whichever is greater. Possible channeling effects or increased velocity pressures due to the building or structure being located in the wake of adjacent buildings shall be taken into account. Exposure B. Urban and suburban areas, wooded areas, or other terrain with numerous closely spaced obstructions having the size of single-family dwellings or larger. Exposure B shall be assumed unless the site meets the definition of another type exposure. Exposure C. Open terrain with scattered obstructions, including surface undulations or other irregularities, having heights generally less than 30 feet (9144 mm) extending more than 1,500 feet (457 m) from the building site in any quadrant. This exposure shall also apply to any building located within Exposure B type terrain where the building is directly adjacent to open areas of Exposure C type terrain in any quadrant for a distance of more than 600 feet (183 m). This category includes flat open country, and grasslands. Exposure D. Flat, unobstructed areas exposed to wind flowing over open water, including inland waterways, for a distance of at least 1 mile (1.61 km). This exposure shall apply only to those buildings and other structures exposed to the wind coming from over the water. Exposure D extends inland from the shoreline a distance of 1,500 feet (457 m) or 10 times the height of the building or structure, whichever is greater. Item 2 - Do I need to include the Roof Eave-to Ridge height Adjustment ? Yes Items 5-7 - Can I skip these Adjustments ? Yes Does it make sense to have two different programs? In my area, we don't need the seismic adjustment factors. Would this reduce the price?

    Complex Macro Request, is this possible?

    Joe, Here, we use CS-PF on almost every job. I think we need to be able to input all the factors that go into calculating the Braced Wall length.

    Save As

    I think SSA should be free after 75. At the very least a senior discount.
  23. Steve, good video. Going to give your method a try.
