These conditions just passed structural inspection today. The client is wondering why I’m making such a big deal about it.
I just have to ask this and display my ignorance, but it's killing me. Did Bill's picture show the burned-off stub of a beam that should have continued to the next column or a stub that simply extended an inch to far to clear the plywood? I don't do buildings, so I can't decide whether its more stupid to cut away structure that should be there or spend all that time coping out a hole that shouldn't. Unless maybe it was both.
