No calculations required in TX, OK, LA, AR,MO,KS,GA,NC, MI ??? That explains why there is no plan check in Texas !

This seems very very bad ....  I hope the New Madrid fault is dormant for a long time to come.

Seems like someone could very easily abuse this system and generate under-designed or grossly overdesigned structures.

Not everywhere in the US.  I have never had to submit calculations here in
Texas, nor in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Georgia, North
Carolina, or  Michigan.

I would suggest contacting the local building official to determine the permit
