I got one direct response that is probably not typical. I'm really wondering the following:
- should I let the inspector come through and tell me what to fix or should I try to make it perfect (and perfect is not well-defined) before the inspector gets there?
There are clearly regulations that were designed for a large hotel that don't make a lot of sense when you're talking about a single family residence.
It's been a few months and I've learned enough to respond to my own posting. First lesson:
1) The websites aren't necessarily accurate, *including* those run by the government. "Vacation Rentals" in Florida are not subject to inspection. [disclaimer: i'm not a lawyer, this might change, etc]
2) Thus, you just get your license in the mail. That's how it works. You're still responsible for complying with the statutes and administrative rules.
