Description


The first book of its kind to hit the market, BUILDING CODE BASICS: RESIDENTIAL, BASED ON THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE departs from traditional code books by using non-code language, detailed illustrations, and an emphasis on practical information to give readers a solid, working knowledge of critical code applications. Part of Building Code Basics, a series dedicated to providing high-quality, technically accurate, simplified code texts for anyone seeking greater understanding of the workings of the I-Codes; this installment focuses on the basics of the residential code. Topic coverage follows the logical order of construction, beginning with site work and foundations, and ending with fire- and life-safety and the environmental requirements of a finished building. These code requirements are introduced using non-intimidating language and an easy-to-understand writing style, facilitating learning and comprehension. Code references are also included, and when paired with these practical explanations, they are a valuable addition to the book's resources, making this an ideal tool for students of construction technology or anyone considering a career in the design, construction, or inspection of residential buildings.
