    Got the final inspection certificate

    I payed the carpenters Saturday as they had finished the construction phase of the workshop project and the Building Inspector came by today to check the final construction for the building permit. He looked around checked one of the electrical outlets and wrote out the approval form.

    I now have an approved basement remodel workshop and office space.

    I'll get some pictures taken of the final (well sorta final) shop layout and post them here soon. Things are looking up for me to be able to fully utilize the new shop now. Got the Internet connection routed down to the new office space and that was also a major step forward.

    I love it when a plan comes together - pics soon.

    Congratulations. It feels great to get that inspector approval.

    Re: Got the final inspection certificate

    But was all of that inspection stuff really necessary? Some say it's essential and others contend it's a money grabbing exercise by the local authorities.

    There's been some discussion about "permit or not to permit" here recently.

    Re: Got the final inspection certificate

    Having lost a home once to fire and subsequent water damage, I'm very much in favor of permits. The grilling we got from the fire inspector and the insurance company made me glad the improvements we made were permitted.

    I would definitely say it's both, Jeff.

    Necessary but also a nice little earner.

    Re: Got the final inspection certificate

    ...and you had records of the permitted work prior to the fire? Was the fire related to that work or did the fire marshal find a different cause, unrelated?

    Just curious.

    Re: Got the final inspection certificate

    Our permits and inspection records were on file in the county office. The cause was determined to be electrical in the original structure and not addition we added. Builder was long gone when we had our fire, luckly we were not home when it occured.

    I've just about got everything where it is going to go and I'll post some pictures in the next day or two to prove it really happened. Been working on setting up the new office downstairs as well. Lots to do and lots more trips to Cary needed.

    I got some furring strips and put dadoes in them every foot to hang the DC Ducting from like you and Bill C did. Always learning better ways from others.

    Take some pictures of that - I don't remember dados in furring strips. (and the reason?!)
