Hi All,

For my edification…not my inspection but the question arose “had I ever seen this before”? I had not. I’ve never seen posts used in this manner toe-nailed in as well. So my question for the esteemed group is…Is this really acceptable? Supposedly it “passed” code but we all know what that means.

I look forward to hearing from y’all.

I’ve never seen anything like that either. I’m wondering why so many? It’d be interesting to see the architectural plans. I wish I could be of more help.

Thanks Christopher
I haven’t ever seen posts used in this manner either so I figured I would check with the brain trust. There’s a lot of them and they’re all in a vertical format.

What type of perimeter wall was around the house?

Hi Randy,
Unfortunately I don’t know. These pics came from a client… not my inspection. They were curious and not having seen this before I’m curious as well.
