Question by Bob Davis

Planning to add an attached garage on our house and I was wondering if code requires firestop drywall behind the metal or can I use the metal attached directly to the trusses. This would be the same type of metal used on pole barns.

I'm selling my checkthishouse.com domain and this website.

I created it in 2001 for my home inspection business so it's a well established property with around 150 home improvement related posts. It also comes with a Youtube channel and a Q&A forum.

Website can be easily adopted for any home inspection / home improvement related business. Makes money on daily basis without even being touched, although it could make much more, I just don't have time to maintain it.

If you're an Illinois based home inspector I'll add http://homeinspectorillinois.com domain to this deal.
