CO

WE GOT A CO TODAY FOR PINKY SMITH! For those of you who do not know a CO stands for certificate of occupancy. You recieve your CO after your final inspections. During the home building process we have to go through a series of inspections. First you must have your footers inspected before you can pour the concrete, then you must have your foundation inspected before you can pour the concrete for that. Next, before you can cover up the walls with drywall or siding you must go through a sheeting, framing, rough-in electrical, rough-in plumbing, and HVAC inspection. Once you pass these you need an electrical inspection to get power to the house and finally when everyhting is finished again you go through a final electrical, plumbing, building, and HVAC inspection. For those counting that is anywhere from 9 to 12 inspections depending on the jurisdiction, that final list sometimes is one trip by one inspector sometimes all different inspectors. So, yesterday, we got Pinky Smith's CO and she showed up later that day to say thank you, so thank you to all those who worked on her house. We love passing inspections, it often calls for dancing and even better we love moving people into their homes.
