The knowledge will set you free. Please read the last post by Chuck Greenlaw
to see the frustration that we are up against. I have a response, but not

I agree, Dennis. My new house was framed last week - I wasn't satisfied
with the builder's choice of materials or the LFRS (or lack thereof?).
Before raising hell I checked the building code and was utterly amazed that
