One local building official I dealt with had a poster on the wall in back of his desk that said: "Dealing with a Building Inspector is kind of like wrestling a pig in the mud. You have to remember the pig enjoys it." I've found most inspectors to be reasonable if you just bite your tongue and listen to what they have to say.

There's a method for dealing with


1. Before doing the job, get an appoinment,

talk to the inspector. Tell him about the job.

This is a crucial step many ignore or miss.

2. Ask his advice. Take notes.

3.Get the permit.

4. Follow the advice in step #2.

5. Stand back, and watch how easy an

inspection can be.

(Inspectors hate, hate, hate being left out
of the loop.)
