OHH the old days before electronic logs ,
Good thing you're not in my neck of the woods... I built a barn for myself (by myself with a high school student helper) as a retirement present back in 2006. When the foundation guys pitched the floor from back to front for drainage, they got it 1/4" higher at the back than the blueprints called for. So when I built my very rugged stairs per the design specs, the bottom step ended up being exactly 1/4" less than all the others. The new code enforcement officer (first day on the job) was going to make me tear them out and start over. The retiring CEO (known him for decades) who was also there gave me a wink and that was that...helped level small illegal set of stairs today.
