      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What code is it? UBC, IRC, '01 '06???????? Lots of the codes haven't even been adopted yet. Many of them are interpretive or amended.

It's a good idea, just trying to clarify.

sparcebag to view a pdf file you'd either have to host that on your photo sharing site and then post a link to it. Or just post the link to site its on now. Links to government sites are OK to post btw. Good Idea.

I believe in MN it is IRC 06 and selected portions of UBC. You will need a copy of those codes to really possess all codes enforced in MN. The MN code is in addition to and/or instead of parts of these national codes.

You are right, but it depends on what parts of it are actually adopted. Some are changed also depending on what part of the state you are in. There is big discussion about this reguarding to the energy code, storms, other weather, mold, etc, etc......

It seems there is no end.

I think it is still compliant to build a Cat.1 or 2 UBC home. Not sure though.

Not in MN they can't, if you go above & beyond State code, you must do it by City ordinance which the city should provide you with the ordinance if you ask. Minneapolis & St Paul are an exception, because they had a code before the State did. As an inspector, I always advise contractors if they are having as issue with someone requiring more than the code, politely ask the inspector to show you or tell you the code section.

Correct. MN state code takes precedence. I believe the link that was posted above brings you to the ammendments to the MN code. On thing I have experienced is the state will give their opinion on how a code should be interpreted but the local building officials will have final say.

This would be true but aren't the codes the minimum requirement and therefore if a local code is more restrictive it would be applicable? I know that's how it works with electrical codes.

The state building code is minimum standards or req's, but if a city changes a section of the code by an ordinance then enforcement is by ordinance adopted and can be above and beyond what the state building code req's.

Yep, the International codes are updated every 3 years. In MN we are not adopting the 09 at all, we just got into the 06. Our next code will probably be the 12 with MN amendments.

Existing Minnesota Statute that prohibits cities, townships and counties from adopting building codes or ordinances that are more restrictive than the State Building Code. They cannot do it.

326B.121 STATE BUILDING CODE; APPLICATION AND ENFORCEMENT.

Subdivision 1. Application. The State Building Code is the standard that applies statewide for the construction, reconstruction, alteration, and repair of buildings and other structures of the type governed by the code. The State Building Code supersedes the building code of any

municipality. The State Building Code does not apply to agricultural buildings except with respect to state inspections required or rulemaking authorized by sections 103F.141; 216C.19, subdivision 9; and 326B.36.

Subd. 1a. Municipal ordinance; completion of exterior work. A municipality may by ordinance adopt an official control that requires exterior work authorized by a building permit issued in accordance with the State Building Code, to be completed within a specified number of

days following issuance of the building permit. The local regulation may not require completion of exterior work earlier than 180 days following the issuance of the permit.

Subd. 2. Municipal enforcement.(a) If, as of January 1, 2008, a municipality has in effect an ordinance adopting the State Building Code, that municipality must continue to administer and enforce the State Building Code within its jurisdiction. The municipality is prohibited from repealing its ordinance adopting the State Building Code. This paragraph does not apply to municipalities with a population of less than 2,500 according to the last federal census that are located outside of a metropolitan county, as defined in section 473.121, subdivision 4.

(B) If a municipality is not required by paragraph (a) to administer and enforce the State Building Code, the municipality may choose to administer and enforce the State Building Code within its jurisdiction by adopting the code by ordinance.

(c) A municipality must not by ordinance, or through development agreement, require building code provisions regulating components or systems of any structure that are different from any provision of the State Building Code. This subdivision does not prohibit a municipality from enacting or enforcing an ordinance requiring existing components or systems of any structure to be maintained in a safe and sanitary condition or in good repair, but not exceeding the standards under which the structure was built, reconstructed, or altered, or the component or system was installed, unless specific retroactive provisions for existing buildings have been adopted as part of the State Building Code. A municipality may, with the approval of the state building official, adopt an ordinance that is more restrictive than the State Building Code where geological conditions warrant a more restrictive ordinance. A municipality may appeal the disapproval of a more restrictive ordinance to the commissioner. An appeal under this subdivision is subject to the schedule, fee, procedures, cost provisions, and appeal rights set out in section 326B.139.
