It's what the state classifies as commercial rated (by weight).

My personal pick up is a heavy duty 2500. It requires that I register it in a different weight class (it is heavier).... than our 1500's, that the workers drive.

Ahh, Napa's not bad,


Anyways...Chief Building Official or his designates has the powers to enter your premises with just cause. You gave him just cause.

You have a huge red flag you are waving around...your a target...get rid of it...give these people everything they want and next time you do anything around that property...call them...I don't care if you are planting a flower in the back yard...call them and ask if a permit is needed.

Atlantic...I got dinged on the registration also, fortunately I was only 22 at the time and could play really stupid, cop gave me 48 hours to repair the infraction and return proper doc's to him.

I understand that. It's not the issue here. Once you pass a mark on a vehicle's GVWR - Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, it's boo-koo bucks to register. ALSO requires a CDL to drive. Many businesses are bagged improperly registering their trucks as "kinda not really trucks" by claiming the vehicle is outfitted to an extent that the GVWR is much less than what the vehicle is actually rated for. This is not just to save on registration costs, it also allows a business to keep the vehicle in a class that doesn't require a CDL class B driver.

Forgive my apprehension, but I found that whenever a business makes a "mistake" it's almost ALWAYS to their benefit. Why is that?

BTW, ANY vehicle used for business purposes, regardless of registration class, including the Domino's pizza delivery car, is required to have a driver with at least a CDL class C.

Not entirely true. This varies state to state.

How detailed of a drawing would they require for the new gable? I know some CAD, should I just draw something up showing how it was structurally built?

Knowing California...a lot of detail

Suggest you look to hire a designer, not an architect, find a student studying, they are reasonable...may even work for beer. Show him what you did and have him draw it up, submit it, it will go out for an outside party to review whether it needs a structural stamp (doesn't sound like it).

Take a few lumps here. if they come in and the place looks remodeled, that could spell trouble for you, things like texture changes (not consistant with the rest of the house) are sure give aways. Replacing outlets and light switches with new decora style may raise eye brows, the list goes on and on.

Like I said, you made yourself a target, they are fairly slow on inspections right now so they are beefing up enforcement. I know one inspector in the county up here, his job is to drive around the rural roads looking for people doing things like you did and nailing them for it. It was that or get laid off, he finds lots of infractions...when your slow it's amazing what you find.

If they demand sprinklers...you know you really pissed him off.

This is a newly purchased house, how are they going to prove that the work was done by me and not the previous owner?
