No Need To Be So 'Lax' About It ...

Hi Cal,

If you happen to live in potentially extreme environments, it would pay to pay attention to the Codes. Yes, corners are 'cut' all the time. I happen to have a conscience. If it's my house, well, if I'm gonna be 'lax', then I have to live in the bed I make. But if it's someone else's house, I wouldn't be able to sleep at nigh if being 'lax' meant making a few extra $$$ at someone else's expense.

About saving time - Who doesn't want that? You can pay now or pay later in your 'time' if it happens that a wall falls because you didn't toe-nail it when you should have (per code). Or you didn't cross-brace when you should have. And so on.

Well, I just fell off my soap box. If you can, let me know the houses you work on so I can stay away from them.

Happy hammering, or whatever.
