  1. The light and ventilation portion is pretty forgiving if you consider the exceptions to §303.1. If the openings are not required for egress, operable sash may be avoided altogether if their is a whole house ventilation system. (see M1507) As for 8%, if there is an alternative artificial light source that can provide adequate (place esoteric number here) light then one can avoid meeting the requirement.
  2. What Jim said: either scissor trusses or attic trusses.
  3. Fiberglass w/o a vapor barrier in that location is plain useless. A nicely fitted 1" thick EPS foam board would be a far superior solution and thicker would be better still.
  4. I laid 300 sf of 3x14 in our foyer in a herringbone pattern. It was a hellish experience. The pricks that bought weren't flat and they weren't uniform .
  5. I think he had to do that to maintain pitch
  6. Yours is nice bordering on OCD. My photo was tongue in cheek.
  7. A true craftsman spares no effort to properly return the tile at the corners. All four corners had this level of workmanship.
  8. Congrats on the cause of your maternity leave! That didn't sound right. Good luck with your new baby!
  9. My mother is 92. She is the best mold detector I've ever known. You can't smoke or swear around her... what's this gig pay? I have to tell you though, before you can report the mold, she'll clean it up.
  10. Yes. Clearly there are other issues. FWIW, I tried calling you but I couldn't get past the person who answered the phone. I even dropped the phrase, "close, personal friend".
  11. Did you see the picture? Who else would you call?
  12. That's what threw me for a loop. I metered the panel and there was 240v between any of the terminals. Luckily, Douglas Hansen answered his phone and told me what I was looking at- once he explained it, I sort of understood it- I had to see the schematic to get it.
  13. Need a good inspector in Salt Lake County or Tooele County UT for friend. I appreciate any help.
  14. No 120 v loads, it served only roof top HVAC Equipment. It made my brain smoke when I got to the basement and didn't find any 3-phase panels.
