The older I get the more cynical I become.  Is there ANY realistic connection between the "fine-tuning" (AKA nit-picking) and the actual results for the occupant/user?


People have a false sense of security that a structure that meets code is safe, will not be damaged in an earthquake or will not leak.  Most problems that arise are contractor related not code related.
