Re: Garage addition

said by AVD:

I don't understand. Most jurisdictions require an engineer to seal all drawings.

Not required by state code here. A GC license allows them to accept liability on stuff up to a certain point so you don't need stamps. Our GC does this all the time in other cities. Our city trumps the state by requiring stamps. I could go to the state and fight it. I'd win but stuff would be delayed months or even years and I'm sure it would cost more then $1,500. The city building inspector said they require it, "For my protection".

I meant that "Most jurisdictions require an Engineer to seal all drawings that s/he produces"
