That makes sense, thanks!It matters with your steps, and how much both you and the PB want to amend the plans.
To accommodate the extra step (or 2) they would need to push back the sun shelf accordingly and that may need new/amended permits depending on how far along it is in the process if they have to change the footprint.
Or they would have to put the extra steps on the inside of the pool which would be toe stubbers when moving down that side.
The PB might just be saying they don’t do it because they know what headaches and delays they will get from both the town and the customer at this point. It’s easier to say they don’t, then to say they can but it will suck for both of you.
I have a question about the gas line... My home gas meter has a 1” line from the street, so I’m wondering if any line off that needs to be equal or smaller when running to the pad heater. At the moment, the plumber has 1 1/4” in the estimate to run from meter to heater.
