During a previous inspection – I think it was for framing – the City had called me out on the anchor bolts.
Portland code requires the anchor bolts be installed with square washers to prevent pull-thorough under load. The builder had installed with no washers. I thought they needed the washers but the builder said it passes without.
Sometimes I have a feeling that the City comes down harder on DIY homeowners than the builders, although I’ve heard the opposite as well.
Anyway, I backed out the bolts – an good drill helps – also used a wrench where headroom was restricted. The washers are kind of spendy at around $5/each.
I was concerned the replacement bolts would not go in quite as tight so I epoxied any that were going in too easily.
