From the Back Cover:

An easy-to-use illustrated guide to the building code requirements for construction of residential structures

The construction industry is evolving a single set of international building codes. Now, more than ever, architects need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specific projects. One in a series of focused guides to building codes from Wiley, this book familiarizes code users with the 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC) as it applies to residential buildings. The book focuses on the essential ten chapters of the IRC that set forth the core provisions of the code necessary for use in building design and construction.

Early understanding and incorporation of code-compliant design provisions in a project is essential. This book provides design and construction professionals—architects, engineers, and residential building contractors—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 provisions for one- and two-family residential buildings and townhouses.

Residential Building Codes Illustrated:

  • Is organized to follow the 2009 International Residential Code itself, focusing on ten essential chapters related to building design and construction
  • Presents information in an exciting user-friendly visual format
  • Includes Steve Juroszek's drawings to bring new life to code interpretation
  • Provides commentary written by seasoned codes experts

Residential Building Codes Illustrated is an essential companion to the IRC for those seeking to master the accepted construction knowledge in the field, and for experienced practitioners needing to understand the newest code revisions and changes.
