Should a homeowner get his own building permit?
The short answer is “No”. The long answer is also “No”.
Really? Yeah, this one is straightforward.

“Honey,” JoAnn called to her husband, “George stopped by yesterday. He said our deck violates the building code.”

Silence.

“You know George, he’s one of the building inspectors in town. ”

“Uh-huh “

“He says our deck violates the building code.”

Silence.

“Fred, listen to me.”

“I am listening,” he replied – as he continued playing with the TV clicker.

“Well, he says our deck violates the building code.”

Silence.

“FRED!”

“Well, he should know. He’s one of the inspectors downtown.”

JoAnn glared at her husband. “I just said that.”

“Uh-huh.” Fred continued to scan the TV shows.

JoAnn walked to the TV, reached down, and unplugged it.

The screen turned black. “Whatta ya doin? I was watchin’ that!”deck_collapse

“Not anymore. Now you’re talking to me.”

“Ok, ok. So the deck violates the code. It hasn’t fallen down.”

Interesting. It has not fallen down.

Think about it: if your deck does not meet the building code, why has it not fallen down?

There are several reasons that a non-compliant deck might not collapse. Let’s take a look.

A front porch is your home’s face. It’s what everyone sees as they drive by. It greets your friends even before you do.
