Mar 20th 2013 7:39PM I've lived in SC for 22 years and have yet to find a local that knows the difference between their, there & they're. Not to mention the fabricated words they use daily. Brung (Brought) Hep ( Help) and the college grads - conversating (Conversing). Many more.

Jul 24th 2012 1:13PM Most utilities have installed these meters in new homes when service was provided. Electric, gas and water. It's a means of reading the meters without sending someone out to actually read them. Most bills are averaged out after the first year so your bills are consistant and at years end they'll adjust the next cycle year to make up for any short falls or credit for over payment. This has been going on for years in many areas of the country. The smart meters are more accurate than the old mechanical ones.
Jul 8th 2012 10:38AM The building will have to adhere to codes involving Assembly use group. This house can't be made to do that. It would have to be taken down and a new structure built for that purpose. Codes for "Assembly" are the second strictest code just under 'High Hazard" use. IT's all about life safety.
Jul 8th 2012 10:33AM The number of code violations is over ten. That's a lot of life safety issues. Building designed for "Assembly" like schools & churches have very specific requirements for its occupants safety as well as the building itself. Thsi man has put himself, his family and all the others in danger. He should be prosecuted and sentenced accordingly. He ujst have ben warned a number of time and just ignored these warnings. He's a danger to all around him.
Jul 8th 2012 10:05AM The building codes are there for life safety. He's putting himself, his family and his attendees at risk. Hi home is noither designed for assembly nor is it protected. Buildings designed for Assembly have specific requiremenst based on its Occupancy Level. Fire egress corridors, Fire egress doors, sprinkler systems, exit designations, fire retardant materials etc. etc. His home's nopt even close. He should be arrested and prosecuted for endangerment of others, children if they're in the home and other broken laws.
Jul 8th 2012 9:59AM Lucifer? Get a grip. The problem is religion. This idiot is putting his followers in danger because his home was designed to hold that many people. Not to mention all the code violations he's committed. These codes are for life safety of you as well as others. That's why these are special requirements for buildings designed for "Assembly" Fire exists, signage, prinklers, fire egress corridors and dorrs as required by the occupancy level permitted. This guy's dangerous to himself, family and whomever assembles in his fire trap.
Jun 8th 2012 12:12AM The neighbors can refuse to sign the variance and can protest the addition legally. HOwever, if the complaint is that someone's view of the ocean might be blocked by the addition, that means they're not ocean front. That also means they didn't pay for the view inspite of the fact they had one. His building permit has to go through the process and if a variance is needed, he may not get one. It all depends on the zoning laws/regulation of the town. If all the neighbors within the variance area protest the addition, typically he won't get one. But he's running for Pres. That might make a difference.
Jan 1st 2012 9:23AM Prices are as determined by 3 things. Location, location & location. A small shoebox 1,000 sq.ft. home in Manhattan can cost up to 1 million dollars, depending on the specific area, while a 2,500 sq. ft. home in the mid-west would go for less than $100,000.
Dec 7th 2011 9:56AM The article addresses this. If people were in the home, the Firefighters would have intervened. They wouldn't stand by and let any living thing die in the blaze. That would be ludicrous.
