CCHBA Punch List - November 10, 2016

11/10/2016 9:50 AM | Teri Edwards (Administrator)
A quick update on what's happening at the CCHBA office and in the home building industry.

Punch List
  Date: November 10, 2016

A Quick Phone Call Will Help Make Our Voices Heard

In just a few days, building inspectors and others eligible to vote will begin the online voting for the ICC code development process (cdpACCESS) for the 2018 editions of the International Residential Code, International Energy Conservation Code, International Fire Code and International Building Code ─ Structural Provisions. The voting period is scheduled to go from November 8th to the 21st.

You probably don't personally know all of the building inspectors in North Carolina who are eligible to participate (click here to view NC list of validated voters), but you likely know someone who does. With just one call from a builder sharing the importance of the potential impact of the proposals on the code, we believe building inspectors will be more likely to consider our voting positions when they sit down at their computers and vote.

  • Download this Quick Voting List for those code changes that are important to the home building industry and our most important constituency: new home buyers. It's arranged by code type with the most critical votes at the top.
  • Identify builder members that are likely to know code officials on the validated voter list.
  • Encourage them to contact their validated code officials and share our voting list with them.


Have Questions?

Robert Privott, NCHBA Director of Codes and Construction, will be our guest speaker at the November 16 Annual Meeting. 

Any Building Code questions or comments can be submitted to the office in advance and Mr. Privott will be sure to address them. 

If the question concerns a ruling from a building inspector, please include the explicit code referenced as the reason for the ruling.

Questions should be sent to

WCHS needs judges for Senior Projects

Judging  will be held on THURSDAY DECEMBER 1, 2016. Judges will start the evening at 5:30pm in the WCHS Cafeteria.

If you have not previously volunteered to judge these projects, it is a really simple process. 

Seniors at WCHS are required to complete a cumulative project during their senior English class. The students are required to complete a project, write a paper, create a portfolio, and finally give a presentation to community members. Past projects include: composting, learning to shag, building a boat, and many community service projects. 

As a judge, you will sit on a panel with 2-3 other judges, review the students' portfolios and then hear and evaluate 3-4 student presentations. No previous experience is necessary.

Becoming a judge is a wonderful way to connect with others in the community, help our students succeed, and volunteer time and expertise. It is also an excellent way to experience what Senior Projects are all about (especially for parents of future WCHS seniors). You may even learn something!

Please e-mail Tiffany Mayo ( by NOVEMBER 18 if you can help.
