    Ask For Permission First, Not Later: How To Seek Approval for Variants

    Ask For Permission First, Not Later: How To Seek Approval for Variants

    In this podcast, QCP Director of Inspections, Greg Parham, discusses the importance of asking for permission at the start of a project when seeking approval for variances.

    We talk about why asking for permission to modify should be the first thing a woodworker does, and how doing this can streamline the entire project. We also shed light on who has the authority to give approval for a variant, what consequences could arise if a woodworker decides to ask for permission after the project, and what the most efficient way of getting variants approved is.
