Concrete Inspectors

Inspector’s Imprint

After I got done doing the initial cutter room’s floors the inspectors came by at night and checked my work. In the morning I found their signatures of approval.

Signatures of Remus and Romula

Fortunately they were quite considerate and did not sign my smooth floors in visible places. In fact, all of the signatures are in places that will be covered over. I guess they just wanted to leave their mark on the project.

Katya Monitoring Work

This is Katya who watches me as I work. Yesterday I did the coves and curbs in the initial cutting room. I also got the bathroom floor floated. I completed the office floor floating, curbs and coves a few days ago so this leaves only the hall for floors and bathroom coving and then the lower parts of the rooms will be completed, ready to cure for a month so I can apply the polyurea seal.

    Speaking of inspectors, How much time do you spend with the building inspectors. What’s your experience?

    • We don’t have code inspectors, just USDA and Vermont State Meat inspectors. They have both been involved with our project and planning since the very beginning. Periodically the head of inspection has come out to go over things as we reached milestones in construction. Early December is the next planned visit. Since we are in a very rural area in the most rural state, a farm and not a public building we are exempt from some of the inspection that one might have to deal with in NYC, California, etc. However I have still consulted with the code specialists and inspectors when I’ve had questions such as on plumbing, construction, electric, etc. Think of it as more of a voluntary, helpful suggestion system.
