Answers to common code questions at your fingertips This handy jobsite tool will become as indispensable to you as your cell
phone, tape measure, and level. This pocket-friendly companion to the International Residential Code discusses the impact
of 2018 code changes to fire-resistant walls separating townhouses, emergency escape and rescue openings in basements, safety
glazing adjacent to doors and bottom stair landings, and more. The book also updates requirements for smoke alarms and carbon
monoxide alarms, and introduces helpful wood deck provisions. It includes more than 100 detailed illustrations and useful
tables and discussion, among other areas, of: foundations; fire safety; energy efficiency; mechanical, plumbing and electrical
systems; safe and healthy living environments. The book is meant to be of practical use on the jobsite, not as a substitute
for the IRC.
