I do have to say when dealing with "designers" (yes it's in quotes) one of my favorite things they like to convienently forget are things like required switches and outlets. They say things like it will conflict with the furniture, art work, or wall finishes. Can you tell I don't like stupid designers?

Can we start another thread but with designers too?

They don't forget devices. They forget to provide a means to install any said devices.

And sometimes I don't think they forget... I think they do this on purpose.

Yeah one told me Friday if the code doesn't violate her layouts and finishes she's fine with a code compliant installation. All I could say was wow just wow.

" I can't approve your final inspection because the building is on fire."

I pulled up to a job for a final inspection on a new single family. Smoke was rolling out of the eaves. I called dispatch and requested POCO and fire dept. Then I called the GC - his phone number is right on the inspection sheet.

The damage was limited and they called it back in the next week. Never did hear what the problem was, but it certainly had something to do with POCO setting the meter and someone turning on the main and leaving. I've heard of using the bldg dept as your punch list originator but that goes a little too far.
