Sealed Crawl

Sill Plate
Deck Footings
Can Lights installed in the ceiling of a garage must be IC rated.
Sheathing inspection is for sheathing only, not the roof. House should
be dryed in. Plans are only required on the site if the house is brick
veneer for bolt on lintels.
A sealed crawl is not a conditioned crawl. The liner is lapped and runs
up the wall with a 3’ gap at the top for termite inspection.
There is a conflict between the Building Code and the Mechanical
Code. Table 403.3 of the Mechanical requires the bathroom to be
mechanically ventilated. Window will not meet the requirement.
There are new ICC compliance reports for foam insulation. They must
be supplied and followed for foam insulation installations. See attached
When a stucco house is re-roof a new certification letter for the stucco
should be obtained. The required distance between the new roof and the
