This portable companion book is based on the 2012 International Residential Code® (IRC) which establishes minimum regulations for the construction of one- and two-family dwellings and townhomes. It includes provisions for:

  • Structural design
  • Fire & life safety
  • Energy conservation
  • Mechanical systems
  • Fuel-gas systems
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical systems

 

 

2012 Home Builders' Jobsite Codes includes more than 100 detailed illustrations and useful tables and discussion, including:

  • Blower door tests
  • Whole-house mechanical ventilation
  • Fire protection of floors
  • Wall bracing methods
  • Roof construction
  • Hot water piping
  • High-efficiency lighting

This reference is meant to be of practical use on the jobsite, not as a substitute for the IRC.
