A Hand-built Home From the Ground Up article from Home Power, April / May 2006 excerpt: Somewhat reluctantly, we ended up going through the county inspection process for our home. Our inspector turned out to be reasonable and, instead of requiring us to have the plans stamped by a local engineer, allowed us to use Pima County, Arizona, building codes that detail "monolithic adobe." He also allowed us to live in our house while we were finishing it. http://static.scribd.com/docs/gj6bww0ac94va.pdf Includes a floor plan and cost breakdown. (Labor hours are included, but not billed.) Mark Piepkorn www.potkettleblack.com It is not the activity of the present moment but wise reflections from the past that help us to safeguard the future. - Proust
