Live Building Code Q&A (with Andy Schreder)

Building official Andy Schreder with Rum River Construction Consultants joins the show for a Q&A session via Facebook Live. There’s some great discussion of commonly asked questions, along with some very interesting insight from Andy about why building officials don’t always enforce code requirements. The topics include:

  • Permits required for kitchen remodels. Electrical? Plumbing?

  • Dishwasher air gaps, and how they’re going away (YAY!)

  • Reuben’s soap dispenser hack

  • Fire separation between garages, and a distinction between building code setbacks and zoning setbacks

  • AFCI and GFCI requirements

  • The myth that bedrooms need closets and where it came from
