For the first time, SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE 2015 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE AND THE and the 2015 INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTIAL CODE FOR ONE- AND TWO- FAMILY DWELLINGS are available in one comprehensive package. Significant Changes to the 2015 International Residential Code enables users to gain full access to the most critical updates in the IRC, including the real-world application of those changes and how they originated -- all in a single, easy-to-use resource. This edition provides a comprehensive analysis of significant changes since the 2012 IRC, offering key insights into its contents and implications. Coverage includes changes made to building, energy, mechanical, fuel gas, plumbing, and electrical provisions. The attention to detail, logical organization, and thorough yet concise coverage found in this resource, make it an ideal tool for transitioning from the 2012 IRC. The 2015 International Residential Code for One- and Two- Family Dwellings combines building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and electrical provisions into a single resource and uses these provisions to provide detailed insight into the construction of one- and two- family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories high. Using foundational principles that facilitate the use of new materials and building designs to guide the content, this reference guide also establishes minimum regulations using prescriptive provisions. The updated code includes information on common walls separating townhouses, remodeling of an existing basement, ramps that do not serve the required egress door, and carbon monoxide alarms.
