The Official Online Weekly Newspaper of NAHB
A new field manual by NAHB and the International Code Council (ICC) provides critical answers to the most frequently asked residential construction job site code questions.
Available at BuilderBooks.com, the "2009 Home Builders’ Jobsite Codes: A Quick Guide to the 2009 International Residential Code," is a convenient guide to the International Residential Code and a quick reference to common codes for residential construction.
The user-friendly guide, which features illustrations, tables and figures, is meant to be used on the job site for quick reference, but it is not a substitute for the complete codes.
The quick reference includes:
- Provisions addressing all aspects of conventional construction of dwellings and their accessory buildings
- Safety requirements such as egress, emergency escape, fall protection, safe design criteria, fire protection and safe and healthy living environments
- Code provisions for foundations, floors, walls, roofs, chimneys and fireplaces, mechanical, fuel gas, plumbing and electrical systems.
