New inspector for framing came today. Now, I already had one back in January and I took care of everything that the old inspector had called out. I have a theory - every inspector has their hot button, the area they pay special attention to. This fellow's hot button is fire blocking. Which based on a story he later told, explains why.


While the old inspector called out areas that needed blocking, this fellow went way further and has me placing blocking in all sorts of places. Up the stairs, around the fireplaces, on the landing, anywhere there is a level change and no top plates. So, while I most probably would have passed if the original inspector was there, I'm back at square one. But overall, it won't take long to knock out. Regarding insulation inspection, most places have a separate inspection. I asked the inspector about it and no, not here. Insulation is taken care of at the framing inspection, so we need to get it in before I call him back. That's NOT a problem. We're ready to roll with that anyway, so this weekend we'll get started on it. As long as we don't have to slow down. Once that's done we'll get the framing inspection again.

BTW, the inspector had seen someone die in a house fire and the image and smell of that has remained with him ever since. The few extra minutes that blocking might give someone to get out is prime in his mind. Hard to argue with that.

Sandra and Cassidy went out and picked up some flagstone for a walk in the back to the new deck and Cassidy started to dig out and lay it. As I was out of lumber for blocking - no that's not right. As I was feeling a big twinge of ADD, I went out and picked up some rock wool for soundproofing the band room AKA the downstairs guest room. Nearly got it done and it's amazing how sounds get swallowed up. No reflection in the room at all. Todd and Cassidy will love it.
