Title 24 up yours

All you non-Californian should count your blessings. Not only do you not have to deal with hearing Arnold on the news all the time, you don't have to deal with Californians energy codes either. Don't get me wrong...yeah environmentalism.....but when you spend a ga-zillion hours trying to read over the title 24 document (which is the 346 pg. energy guideline document required for a building permit), you get a little nutts. Not to mention our ARE exams are harder, longer, have more restrictions on the time period allowed for completion ( on all 9...5 years) and that the final exam is oral. yikes.

Some title 24 reading....
Exception 1 to the Standards §100(a) states that qualified historic buildings, as
defined in the California Historical Building Code Title 24, Part 8 or California
Building Code, Title 24, Part 2, Volume I, Chapter 34, Division II are not covered
by the Building Energy Efficiency Standards.

time at work: 8-6 is standard. But last night it was 9-5:30 and thencocktailss at the office. No massage for me this week though. :(

I give you props for crossing the state line VanDub. That's another country over there. But the ARE is the same here in AZ, 9 parts, 5 years. Sob, Sob.
Here's a current even to chew on: http://www.architecturemag.com/architecture/search/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001845135

My firm hires a "Title 24" consultant. Specifically to do all of the necessary calculations on glazing, lighting and energy usage...and we do small scale residential. It is a super confusing code.
