The reason for paging the inspector?
It's real simple. Check out this image and explanation at the Global Economic Analysis blog.
Pretty startling, eh? I mean, really. An entire 12 building simply falling over. I've seen some bad Lincoln Log designs but never such a stark example of real-life Jenga.
Which leads me to think about the state of land use/building code inspections here in the U.S. In particular, are any readers aware of something even closely similar to the above debacle?
If so, please post in the comments and, if you'd like, feel free to email image links to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll post links to the best examples later this month.
