users with the 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC) as it applies to
residential buildings. The book provides architects, engineers, and other
related building professionals with an understanding of how the International
Residential Code was developed, and how it is likely to be interpreted when
applied to the design and construction of residential buildings. •
User-friendly visual format that makes finding the information you need quick
and easy • The book’s organization follows the 2009 International
Residential Code itself • Nearly 900 illustrations, by architectural
illustrator Steven Juroszek in the style of noted illustrator and author Frank
Ching, visualize and explain the codes • Text written by experienced experts
who have been instrumental in gaining acceptance for the new unified building
This book is an essential companion to the IRC for both emerging practitioners
and experienced practitioners needing to understand the new IRC.
