Looking forward to working with a talented professional who can help us get our plans approved.

To address the building inspector's comments for your permit approval, follow these step-by-step instructions. I'll break down each requirement and provide examples where needed.

### 1. Building Data

**Clarify Unit Size**: Ensure your proposed unit is within the required size (300-400 sq. ft.). A Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU) must be no more than 500 sq. ft. and contained entirely within the single-family structure.

### 2. General Comments

**Architect Stamp and Sign Plans**:

- All plans must be stamped and signed by a licensed architect.

**Provide Complete Site Plan**:

- Create a site plan showing all existing structures, their distances to property lines, the direction (north), property address, parcel number, public streets, site drainage, and easements.

**Detail Egress Path**:

- Show the path from the ADU's exit to the public way. Include details for stairs, ramps, etc.

**Building Elevations**:

- Provide elevations of all sides of the building with the ADU. Specify if windows are existing or new. Include a door and window schedule with sizes, materials, and types of glass.

**Clarify Previous Use/Occupancy**:

- Indicate what the space was used for previously.

**ADU Within Main Dwelling Footprint**:

- If not entirely within the main dwelling, shade the area proposed for the JADU.

**Assign Separate Address**:

- Assign a separate address for the ADU (e.g., 151A Rollingwood Dr). Ensure address numbers are visible from the street, at least 4 inches in height, and illuminated.

**Plan Sheet Index**:

- Include an index on the title page listing all the plan sheets.

### 3. Architectural Comments

**Minimum Living Area**:

- Ensure the living area is at least 150 sq. ft. excluding bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc.

**Fire-Resistance Rating**:

- Detail a 1-hour fire-resistance rating for separating dwellings, or 1/2 hour if equipped with automatic sprinklers. Provide UL listing and STC rating.

**Natural Ventilation**:

- Provide calculations showing that habitable rooms have natural ventilation (openable area not less than 4% of the floor area).

### 4. Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing Comments
