Re: Permit Inspection

i didn`t

i`m just saying to me that would never be an option at all.
they do follow thru here .
the cities and inspectors are very hard nose here.
i had a client call the city and say he didn't think i did my steel right in my columns once
even though they were already inspected , code compliance came out , and made me tear apart my closed up forms ( which were ready for pour) and re-inspected on my dime .
i was in a condo building one year .taking the elevator up, there was an inspector i had to deal with on a job a year previous. i said " hey how you doing ...etc"( big mistake)
he went right to the management office, asked for all the jobs i was doing in the building .
he went to each of my clients homes , and demanded entrance, and took it upon himself to inspect my work , and the entire condo of each client , even areas in the home i did not work on , and nail them on anything that wasn`t to code.
even had an electric inspector come into a condo on a very pricey island.
he was there do the electric final in a kitchen i just finished .
happened to be " Tommy" who i knew since we were 10.
both shook hands , and caught up on old times ( family , friends etc)
then tommy bust our balls on any small infraction .
then on the way out the door, as he walked through the living room he said " whats that!?"
he didn`t like the way the home owner had hooked up here wall-mount t.v..the receptacle was too far so they had an extension cord going to it. he wanted the receptacle moved before he signed off
said " you have to fix that before i came back.
had one cuss at my client. i got him demoted , and then i had to deal with his supervisor each time , who wasn`t happy about having to come out to the field.
tons of stories in miami

you don`t ignore permits here .

Re: Permit Inspection

My last inspector on the big deck asked for a handful of my cards. He even said we're not supposed to do this but worded properly I don't see a problem.

This was after we got into it at the footing stage. It was arguing code. He went to his truck and unlike many inspectors came back and told me I was correct and he was wrong. It's all about how you present things. He and I had a newly found respect for one another after that. At framing any doubt in his mind was erased.
