[SEAOC] Re: [SEAOC] Wood Shingles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks for the response.  I still have the same question.  Show me where it
says that can't be used or a law that says no.  I agree with all the
problems they create, but since I live in the redwoods where there are many
people who mill there own materials, (myself included) and build their own
houses, I see a lot of it.  I also live in an historical preservation
district with pre-nineteen hundred building design.  The historical
ordinance calls for wood shingles and is generally insisted on by the
historical board.  If it is not leagal, II need something I can oint my
finger at and inform them and the building dept know.
