Patty, You pondered: > Smoke alarms were required in the homes, but were not installed in the > common house. Wierd huh? Somehow it passed through their radar. The primary purpose of smoke alarms is to wake up someone who's sleeping and wouldn't be aware of the smell of smoke. That's why they are required in every sleeping area of a building. The rules for when you do and when you don't need smoke detectors in other buildings - like a common house - are complicated, and the code in use and how that code is interpreted varies from town to town. For those of us involved with new construction, you really need to know what the local requirements are. The fire chief and building officials can tell you what you really need. - - Steve _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
