We are having a house built now. Builder put a sheet of plastic as a barrier around the base of the log posts in the basement that sit on concrete bases beneath the slab. Inspector says that’s not good enough, and wants us to jack the house up, cut the base of the posts, dig out bottom of post, backfill and then block with wood. Is there any product, like a cap on the bottom of the log, we could use or any other easier/more cost efficient way to meet the code? Thanks. Kelly
