Hi Dave, I didn't think there was any place like that left in California. LOL
A couple years ago I did some plans for a guy in Placerville, He thought that the permitting agency was really lax on requirements too. Ended up having to do all the basic stuff required in California like Energy Standards including electrical, heating, cooling, etc.
You see a lot of people do not realize that all of CA. is under the new CBC, all cities, counties etc. have to adhere to the codes including the Energy Standards, big PITA I know. So unless you are just re-roofing and not tearing out the existing sheathing then you can get by with maybe just a re-roof permit, but once you open the envelope of the building you are required to do the full compliance thing.
Anyway just letting you know, please let us know how it goes with your project. Thanks.
I wonder if Nathan would let me blog on this subject?
