This comprehensive code for homebuilding combines building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and electrical provisions into a single resource. The 2012 International Residential Code For One- and Two- Family Dwellings Softbound Version uses these provisions to provide detailed insight into the construction of one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories high. Using foundational principles that facilitate the use of new materials and building designs to guide the content, this reference guide also establishes minimum regulations using prescriptive provisions. Check out our app, DEWALT Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.
About the Author
ICC is a leading organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes. 48 states have adopted various International Codes from ICC.
The IRC is good for design of residential structures, including many prescriptive methods that allow home owners/builders to design their own house without having to hire a full team of consultants. for anything complicated though, use the IBC building code as it has many more design options and provisions.
I am a service plumber in New Hampshire and this code book allows me to perform all my work within the code requirements. It is a useful tool to have all codes within 1 book.
