Format: Paperback
As a result of a 2002 court case, much of the local building codes can now be found online for FREE at:
[...]

If link is outdated, then Google: "international residential code" + "Public Resource" to find the page on the public.resource.org site.
I found most of Georgia's building code in a 756 page PDF document, but for 2006 instead of 2010. The information doesn't change much year to year and many local inspectors are known to not be current, so this is a great resource if you don't have to have the latest edition.

According to the case (293 F.3d 791, 5th Cir. 2002 - VEEK vs. Southern Building Code), building codes that are written into LAW are "owned by the people" and therefore part of the public domain and not protected by Copyright.

Check out Wikipedia for International Building Code for further info.

Good luck!

Loose leaf version is the way to go. It comes in a binder that lays flat and has tabs for easy reference.

I am happy with this purchase. The book was shipped when promised and the packaging was very good. The new IRC has a lot of good updates in it.

This is, of course, essential for anyone building...

It is the Law or Code for building 1-2 story residential buildings.

I found the code book to actually be superior to books such as Graphic Guide to Frame Construction (For Pros By Pros) It is harder to read, but tells you how far to space your nails for each element etc. It not only has similar pictures, but is also the law that most cities and counties abide by, and gives ALOT more info. Some counties have more restrictive guidelines, but this is the baseline to start from.

What can you say about a code reference book. It serves its purpose and I have no issues with the book. It may be a little pricey but overall it was good.

With the 2009 International Residential Code book I studied for the General Contractor's License. This book had the information to pass the test.

This is the standard IRC 2009 code book. Great reading! :-) One of the reviewers said that it contained the tabs and the one I received did not. If you want the tabs you'll have to go to the ICC website. The tabs are very helpful.
