The frame inspection is one of the toughest inspections to pass the first time. I was told that the average time it takes to pass a house is approximately a week.
I was thrilled to find out that our house passed on the first try. The quality of the framer and builder are of course largely responsible for this.
One of the tools that helped a great deal was the Codecheck book that I found on the internet at www.codecheck.com. After reviewing the book on the site, I ordered it and used it to go through the frame with the builder. We did find a couple of errors that would have caused the house to fail inspection.
