Ask yourself why you want your own code book. Do you want instant access to the same information as your city building inspector?

I have a fourth printing (March 2004) and have found dozens of mistakes, items where my code book differs from the one adopted by my state and city, the first printing (January 2003). You would think that given the stated goal of the building code to standardize building practice, that the ICC would either be more careful, or they would put corrections in the public domain. For sure, you shouldn't have to proof the copy and then go looking for corrections. If you want a compendium of all of the known mistakes in all of the ICC code books, you can purchase the bound volume for an additional $13 directly from them. You just have to then figure out which changes go with your edition. It's too bad the ICC doesn't make the corrections edition available at Amazon so that it can be sold "Better Together". My advice? Find out what edition your city uses and get that, it's probably the first printing. If you can't get the same book, wait a couple of years for your city to adopt the next new code (2006?, 2009?) and get a first printing. That way you can borrow your building inspectors' corrections.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Hokieman1981 on March 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
Very good reference book for understanding the details of what the building inspector is using for acceptance criteria. Not for the novice, unless you have a good dictionary available. It does leave some of the minute details in the referenced industry standards (National Electric Code, ANSI standards, etc.). Provdes an excellent way to communicate specifics with the general contractor/builder.

Format: Ring-bound Verified Purchase
A well organized, user friendly code book with extensive figures and tables to help a home designer create a safe and strong home. The loose leaf version allowed me to lay it next to my work and not have to flip it open again and again. Well worth the extra cost.

This was a great purchase however I would suggest getting the newer IRC book. If the 2003 IRC is available at a deep discount, it would still be a great purchase as much of the code is still in effect.

Some references to figures and tables seem to be wrong. They must have updated and misses some things, etc, etc.

Got what I ordered! No mystery, no suspense, just codes / rules and regulations... Would not suggest reading straight through, take a break ...
