For you guys out there that understand the ubc 314 requirements. I have a building inspector (resi) that says whenever a permit is issued for a resi structure it triggers the requirement for new interwired smoke detectors ? The remodel was in the kitchen with a new island and counters,a partioned off wall to create a new little laundry nich, a partionioned wall to wall off a bedroom and create a new bathroom. No remodel has been done as far as ceiling removal etc especially in the areas where smokes would be required in any of the remodeled areas. . Nothing in the bedrooms,halls,living spaces,rec room etc etc. New windows and doors is all. How can they require a rewire and new circuit in a home built in the early 60s ? Especially when there was nothing done in the rooms that would now require detectors?
