Some states have allowances for small/simple structures without a seal/design if they are done in accordance with very prescriptive provisions of the code, and the AHJ checks/inspects everything ... but most states, don't allow that.
Other than that it is actually against state laws for anyone other than a PE or RA evaluate or design buildings and other structures, even if it gets by or is allowed by the local official.
So just be careful there ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
