Yup, it was butterfly bolts and European style with no scribe ends. I ended up scooping out the drywall and fudging the doors. I would cut an 1/8" off a door and edge band with the same laminate as the doors and boxes. I was always a "can do" kind of guy. I still have my cabinet tools. I have a few hundred hinges and a couple dozen of full extension drawer glides for sale on Craigslist. About $800.00 of hardware for $100.00 and so far no interest.

Yep, sure, ahem, the Twilight Zone is my present address.

In apartments, condos and townhomes fire-resistance-rated wall assemblies are allowed to have a (d)
a. 1’ cantilever
b. 2’ cantilever
c. 3’ cantilever
d. All of the above
e. No cantilever

2. In a garage to home common wall the fire-resistance-rated wall assembly shall be fitted to a tightness of (1/20”)

a. 1/4”
b. 1/8”
c. 1/16”
d. 1/20”

In garages that have access to the attic, a hatch cover made from an approved, fire-rated material should protect this access at all times. Missing or opened covers should be called out, as should covers made from flammable materials, such as thin plywood. Garage attic door must be constructed such that the 45-minute rating is maintained; any drywall edges on both the hatch and the surrounding area exposed to physical damage should be protected. The cover or door should be installed so that it is permanent (non-removable), with latching hardware to maintain it in a closed position. This could be accomplished by the use of spring-loaded hinges, a door closer, or hardware that will not allow it to be left in an open position when not in use. A single bolt-type or hook-and-eye hardware does not provide a positive closure, since these would allow the door to be left open. Likewise, drywall screws are fasteners--not hardware--so they cannot be used as the only means of keeping access doors closed.
The living space should be separated from the garage by a firewall that extends from the floor to the roof. If the ceiling material is fire-rated, the firewall can terminate at the ceiling.
Drywall joints shall be taped or sealed. Joints shall be fitted so that the gap is no more than 1/20" , with joints backed by either solid wood or another layer of drywall such that the joints are staggered.


3. Intumescent Firestop Collars are not allowed to be placed on (e)

a. PVC
b. ABS
c. Both PVC and ABS
d. Ceilings
e. Intumescent Firestop Collars are allowed on PVC and ABS

f. Paul made this up to be a trick question and there is no right answer

4. A door from the garage to the homes interior should have a (Can have 2 or more answers) (a&b)

a. 1 3/8” minimum solid wood/ wood product core
b. 1 3/8” solid or honeycombed steel

c. 1 Ό” Gypsum filled cavity between steel veneers
d. A 30 minute rating from the American Fenestration Council
e. All of the above

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Questions Of The Week.
