Energy Code Compliance and the 2020 IRC
Effective October 1, 2020, permit applicants will be required to submit initial energy code paperwork when applying for permits. This will prevent non-compliance issues related to energy code prior to the final inspection. This needs to be turned in just like the engineered wood affidavit is required.

The Silver Lining of COVID-19
There is a silver lining in this dark cloud called COVID-19. While I hate the phrase "new normal," something great has come out of necessity in the last few months. I have seen increased communication between the builder and the inspector. I see trust being given and trust being proven as we rely on alternative methods of inspection. We will reap the benefits of what we have learned during this time to offer even more efficiency once we get through this and we get back to full capacity.
