About

Overview

Take away the uncertainty about applying the International Residential Code® (IRC®) with this student-friendly guide from the BUILDING CODE BASICS series. Unlike other books on the market, Building Code Basics Residential uses simplified, non-code language and logical topic organization to make complex code concepts more understandable. It avoids the technical language associated with the IRC® and instead features code references and descriptive illustrations and tables to explain code fundamentals. Chapters progress in the order of construction, from site-work and foundations through to fire- and life-safety and environmental requirements of a finished residence. Also included are requirements for plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, electrical systems, and equipment.. Building Code Basics Residential fills the existing gap for technically accurate, highly illustrative residential code resources, making it an ideal resource for instructors introducing students to the field.
