Is anyone else bothered by the attitude that "anything in the code is okay
with me"? In other words, if an existing building has a sheet of plywood in
each corner and 1/2" anchor bolts @ 6' oc it's code-compliant and therefore I
shouldn't even mention to an owner or potential owner that maybe it's just a
teeny bit less than we would like to see in a building? Ignorance is bliss?
Just a thought.
