Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)

Not This Time

I’ve been continuing to ask our GC for the framing plan for the renovation and new addition as well as the roof, however he informed me today that his engineer doesn’t have the software to do it and they (GC & subs) would just design it in the field.  No Way!! I’ve seen how they “engineered” our framing in the past, I would be an even bigger fool if I let this happen again.  Fortunately he did suggest that we hire a structural engineer and have that person can check everything and if anything is found to be questionable then he would “re-do” it.  Sounds okay, I guess, but why not make sure we do it correctly the first time?  Also, don’t most engineers have software to aid in drawing their plan?  I’m sure that I could probably even find a free version/program online.
