Book Title: Everybody's Building Code
Publisher: Dream Home Consultants, LLC
Author: Bruce Barker
Construction defects in homes cost millions of dollars every year and place people's health and lives at risk. Everybody's Building Code helps people determine if they and their contractors are complying with the important requirements of the International Residential Code. Everybody's Building Code is for everybody who wants to understand the International Residential Code without wading through the dry and often confusing language of the code itself. Everybody's Building Code states code requirements in direct, command oriented statements and provides hundreds of examples, illustrations, and photographs that demonstrate how to apply the code requirements. In cases where the code requirements may not reflect current best practices, the book discusses some opinions on the subject and directs the reader to other sources for more information. The book contains an extensive key word index and a detailed Table of Contents to help readers find the code provisions they need.
