Code Question

Fellow Inspectors,

                    What code covers the finished lot grade away from exterior walls etc? I have looked at the code book until I am sick of it. I'm trying to get prepaired for a walk thry inspection this afternoon at 2:00 PM in case there are any problems with the builder. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Hi John,

section R401.3

Final grade slope minmum 6" within first 10’. IRC 401.3

Too fast on the draw Gerry :slight_smile:

Too funny, just call me “The Codeslinger” :mrgreen: :wink:



On the building page#1 & figure F1 has the information that I believe you are looking for.

Thanks all. Wow, Gerry you were quick! Codeslinger it is! LOL

Wow Gerry, You sling Code also? I just thought…nevermind…:mrgreen:

So I am trying to hum the “Codeslinger” theme song and am stuck between Bond’s “Goldfinger” and one of Sergio Leone’s Westerns( iyaa iyaa yaaa). Do you have a preference Gerry?:wink:
