that was worth waiting for... or not

After several weeks and many phone calls we finally received a copy of the inspector's report.

This is it:

Inspection at the above address revealed that the rear deck is about 20 years old and doesn't meet present building or planning codes.

Requirements:
1. Obtain a building permit with drawings to show present day codes for hand railings and planning issues with regards to property set back lines
So, the entire point of getting letters from the neighbors stating when they remembered the deck being built was to determine what building codes would apply. This report completely contradicts that point and puts us back at exactly square one.

Dan will be paying a visit to the planning and building departments to discuss.
