I cannot think of any public service employee (that is not uniformed) that can get away with a vendetta against a citizen.

You're talking philosophy, cdru is talking in practice.

The inspector has to give professional courtesy to the contractors, but they have to be courteous to the public too. I cannot think of any public service employee (that is not uniformed) that can get away with a vendetta against a citizen.

While in practice I agree with you, this is the way it should be handled. Unfortunately too often it isn't handled this way. What it really boils to is do you have the money to fight "city hall"? Some do and I've seen some that have that trump card hidden up their sleeve. Trust me, you NEED that trump card if you try and take on "city hall" because otherwise they generally have the "my shit don't stink" and "I can do whatever I want" attitude that really needs to be put back in it's place.

Still choosing not to wait for the inspector?

I'm still not clear who the inspector is, the house is out in an area where the county does not even have an inspector. I'll ask him when I run by there, I suspect its the future houses insurance company inspector.

Since it was only that corner and access area they will be re-inspecting it but they can start building. When I am around there I will get some pics and post em so we can see how it looks.

My understanding they are not patching it yet due to temp they keep hoping for a warm up week or some rough electrical to use a tent/heater solution.

EDIT: and that pier was a mistake in more ways than one, it isn't used by the plans, I know they had the fireplace moved so I suspect it was a remnant from that re-location.

If there are permits then there has to be a inspector somewhere.
