This week I’ve been pushing to complete the permit set and send the drawing to the engineers for them to review. As I continue to dive deeper into the permit set, we are starting to see our design beginning to form, and with that, we are also having to keep updating the floor plans to make sure it meets building code requirements. While moving walls around, we came across an issue with the head clearance for the new stair. Since this is an existing historic structure, we are coming across a problem where the new stair is interfering with the current structure above. After verifying the field measurements, we are missing the head clearance by roughly 3.5in. under the max head clearance of 6ft 8in. Right now, we are working on another solution to this code issue. With this, I’m starting to become more familiar with the IBC and how it pertains to historic buildings.
