Not easy....that’s for sure.

It’s because we have freedom to do what we want. A state imposed code will apply to the entire state. But a local city can choose to be more stringent if they want. We could talk all day, but that would be exhausting. I, too, wish things were simpler & more consistent.

You aren’t up to code. The stuff that’s 7” to the sides is only allowed to stick out 7/8”. And the stuff you have above the firebox is only 10” away according to you. That’s gotta be at least 12”. But the measurement is taken from the nearest inside face of the box. So do double check your measurements.

Chicago is one of the more strict/stringent when it comes to code.
