I agree with Oso! If he couldn't read the plans that said 9' studs, how do you know if anything else is not done correctly. I would go back to the architect and tell him what is going on and insist that he find another site and get another builder to do it correctly! I also would insist that the architect have a construction inspector onsite during the build!

I may have missed another architect, but the discussion started with The Builder's Architect.

Actually, the discussion started with:
"My Builder's architect submitted incorrect plans to the contractor...."

The builder has become incompetent by page 4 of this thread. I think hammerlane gave good advise back on page 1 ---- hire your own structural engineer. He will probably charge you $100/hr, but in the overall scheme of building a house, its a small amount. And most certainly carries more weight with the builder than you walking in and saying "they guy on the internet said...."

Who's who here.

Do you have a "builder" who then hired an architect and a framer (contractor)?

Why is the "builder" picking up the tab? It should be the archy's E&O.
