I only answer the easy questions. And I give easy answers!

I asked our local inspector that was doing a final sign off on a basement we did last month. I tried to ask the hypothetical question but he wouldn't answer because he didn't believe it was hypothetical... I got something to the point - "Go ahead and do some lazy shit like that and we will see if it gets passed."

comment Wall between House and garage is hanging over the concrete slab. Is this a major issue?
I would check into it and get it fixed. I however don't think it is emergency.

Your fridge is sitting on the hole or covering it right?

And hate to add this but if the house was made with the garage (not garage added) then it is probably load bearing.

Is the wall not at a right angle right now? Do you think the wall is moving? Other than it looking weird what made you start investigating it? Did your home inspection point this out?

@Tester101 - not saying you are wrong. But the code is vague. And there is no way in hell would even think about showing that to an inspector. If you think you can get this passed then we are in different worlds as far as inspections.

@Tester101 - Ceilings too? I am just going by interpretations in a few areas of midwest and west coast. No way in the world would I get this passed.

It is a good idea I am thinking about using for a new playset in our yard. Just worried about mowing over rubber and quite possibly the kids thinking rubber mulch is the most fun thing in the world to throw.

How do you keep the rubber mulch from getting all over the yard?
