Building Code Basics Series - 2006 International Residential Code is the first in the new Building Code Basics series, a series dedicated to presenting high-quality, practical building code information in an organized, user-friendly format. This straightforward, focused approach introduces code requirements with non-threatening, non-code language, allowing readers to gain confidence in their understanding of the material. Code references are also included, and when paired with these non-technical explanations, they are a valuable addition to the book's resources. This book focuses on the basics of the residential code, with topic coverage that corresponds to the order of construction, beginning with sitework and foundations, and ending with the fire and life-safety and environmental requirements of the finished building. Technically accurate and easy to understand, this is the perfect resource for beginning inspectors.
