Some of the newer updates to the fire code are stupid. Like when they mandated that every residential dwelling have a sprinkler system. With no grandfather clause. We’ll get right on installing sprinklers in historic, one room log cabins. And everybody has $25,000 laying around to have a sprinkler system installed in their home, don’t they?
The real problem is compliance. How often have you seen stuff piled up in front of a door marked “Fire exit. Do not block.”
