I did some windows for a guy and drew my plans on a piece of paper and he approved it right there. I had to pull out a 12 foot wall, install a header, put in the window and seal it up.

He never came by until the job was done and I had been gone for a week. I just emailed him pictures of the work, mainly the structural part.

Help With Code Violation


In small town Southern Il. a homeowner can just draw up there own plans and submit them as long as you were following the prescriptive method. In fact they even had preprinted wall section diagrams that stated minimum requirements and had blanks for the homeowner to fill in. Very simple if you're not doing anything that requires engineering.

Yup, we do the same thing on the smaller, easier jobs. Big renovations (moving loads, firewalls, etc) require stamped plans, or an engineer's stamp on plans drawn by the homeowner (very common).

And you are now continuing to lose $1,000 a month for nothing. Hopefully you'll figure it out before you've lost $24,000 to avoid a $10,000 expense.
a 1000.00$ a month is a little different then 10,000$ in one shot.
sorry so late on the comment but that just bugged me.
good luck on what ever it takes to get it done.

Yes, $1000 a month is a lot more.

Help With Code Violation


This post should be a sticky right under the general heading "does my job need a permit" for those that need the encouragement. I really wish the OP the best...at least for now it looks like all parties are being reasonable at least for the time being...that's a bonus!
