That's bull...It has negatively affected my building of a home on my property...It adds extra costs which I cannot afford...Extra work in building my home...Unsightly sprinklers sticking out of my ceiling...It may provide a minimal amount of extra safety, but let ME decide if I want that in MY home on MY land...
Add this to all the other excessive requirements & codes & it will be impossible to build my little house on my land...(unless I win the lotto) Gee! Thanks! I suppose I will live the rest of my life homeless - camping out on a beautiful 2 acre piece of land...
