High (low) lights:
Gun nails into all the Simpson brackets (hangers, caps, etc.). Don’t they make a specific nail for that?
Bolts a tad bit small for the post anchors at the base. Laughable.
Lateral bracing nailed, no bolts.
Retaining(gulp) wall and what’s that? The deck foundation sliding along with it.
So out on the inspection yesterday I was questioning the structure and the listing agent was quick to produce a permit card. Permits were pulled for this? Sure enough… just called the City because I didn’t believe it…it passed final first time through.
All I can say is WTF. I’m still going to recommend a review by a structural engineer for the sliding hillside AND the piss poor construction of the deck.
