Re: How much concrete footer do I need for a given wind load?
Hi RE, I see you did not ask the concrete question..
IMHO, yes the inspectors are quite vague at times but they normally do concede/defer to a P.Eng. especially to plans with a stamp/seal on them. The seal transfers the legal responsibility to the PE.
You being in a HIGH wind area , to me, would make it worthwhile, especially to meet that "must be designed for 3 second wind load of 110mph winds" requirement.
