"Is anyone learning from the BCDG?"....heck yes! We are.........I posted this somewhere else, but here it goes again (its worth repeating)
THE BCDG is by far the best site for building code information and resources. Kudos to the people that administer the BCDG for providing such a quality forum to receive information and witness the in-depth discussions between professionals in the business.
What a valuable resource for training for all the building codes! I had no idea that such a powerful and free resource was available. I feel guilty already that I'm getting such valuable information and don't have to pay for it. How do you guys do that (your valuable time helping others like that) Confused My colleagues and I are just thankful that you do and thank your employers and jurisdictions that allow you to take time to contribute like you do here. We feel that we missed out not finding the site earlier in our careers. It would have saved us so much time and aggravation.....since most of what we struggle with you discuss and analyze in this forum daily.
Just by reading your back and forth opinions one can learn so much. THANK YOU THANK YOU.
I'm so impressed with the insight afforded by the likes of ralph, adaguy, codeyman, rlga, the enforcer, ED (yes...Ed...how would this forum be without him), Sharon, codeposter, brentw, needtolearn,handler, jurgen and many many more that I got to know by reading their commentaries..
Whenever we have a need for code opinions or why certain code sections are worded in a certain way...we start by researching the BCDG. Designers and code officials that are not using this site daily, as one of their resources, are so missing out!!!
Keep up the good work and many many thanks!
