      I've been inspecting building construction for the last 35 years. It
seems like the building depts in California are finally coming around to more
completely enforcing the code regulations wrt inspection (they can't do it
all themselves. In general the code requires the owner to retain a special
inspector for certain catagories of work: reinforced concrete, structural
masonry, structural steel and welding, etc. I have been saying to all our
clients that it is cheap insurance.
