Many thanks to all of you who sent me comments last week concerning my plot plan question. All were most helpful.
I now have a new problem and not sure how to proceed. Our county's Building Dept wants two wet-stamped copies of engineering drawings for the TX-455 tower with my permit application. I have copies of old engineering drawings that were used when the current owner of this tower erecetd it in a neighboring county in 1995. Problem is - I am talking about an old U.S. Towers TX-455 that was built around 1991-92. The TX-455 now has a different design and the company engineer will not wet-stamp the old drawings for me, saying that building code requirements have changed and the old tower won't comply with existing wind load standards. I don't know whether they are telling me the truth or whether they hope that I'll purchase a new TX-455 instead. They did suggest I try contacting a local engineer for a possible wet-stamp on the old drawings. I'm wondering why an engineer would do this if the tower is out of compliance, as they say? So - should I try sweet-talking the county into accepting my old drawings along with a current wet-stamped copy of the updated base diagram or just forget the whole thing and start saving my money for the new tower design?
