Choose to Innovate Your Code Compliance (Continued)

Among the changes found in the guide are

• Townhouse and Two-family dwelling separation.

• Ducts buried within ceiling insulation.

• Handrail projection and guards.

• Crushed stone footings.

• Alternative stud heights and

• Appendix Q Tiny Houses

The guide will include a summary of each change; the actual code language; the significance of the change and, when appropriate, illustrations. The guide will be available in either hard copy or as a PDF. Individual pages can be printed from the PDF if you need to show to your local building officials.

Being able to innovate in this fashion would not have been possible without the hard work of former State Representative Joe Haveman and your state association (specifically Lee Schwartz).
