Wiley, Jul 26, 2010 - Architecture - 352 pages
An easy-to-use illustrated guide to building codes for residential structures
As the construction industry moves to a single set of international building codes, architects and construction professionals need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specific projects. This newest addition to Wiley’s series of focused guides familiarizes code users with the 2009 International Residential CodeŽ (IRC) as it applies to residential buildings. The book provides architects, engineers, and other related building professionals with an understanding of how the International Residential Code was developed, and how it is likely to be interpreted when applied to the design and construction of residential buildings.
This book is an essential companion to the IRC for both emerging practitioners and experienced practitioners needing to understand the new IRC.

Do not waste your money, for a professional the book is lacking in content, poorly organized and the google reader from the cloud downloads when it wants to so it is very slow. The book itself is very sparse for information making it a waste of money.
