  1. Here's an example of a new single family dwelling being developed https://www.facebook.com/Customstructuredesigns/photos/a.204621903590551/718729192179817/
  2. I’d be interested, and willing to pay for shipping, please contact me.
  3. Here's an example of a 3-D kitchen walk-through video. https://www.facebook.com/Customstructuredesigns/videos/1469856593214738/
  4. open a text box, hold down the "alt" key and type 0216, then release the "alt" key.
  5. Send me the file, I will try to help you troubleshoot
  6. In every municipality I've worked in, Zoning Ordinances dictate the minimum required number of parking spots.
  7. Here's an example of a garage that I just finished in West Hartford, CT. This is an elevation with story height dimensions.
  8. Here are the amended codes for IRC rise and run here in Connecticut. R311.7.5.1 Risers. The maximum riser height shall be 8 ¼ inches. The riser shall be measured vertically between leading edges of adjacent treads. The greatest riser height within any flight of stairs shall not exceed the smallest by more than ⅜ inch. Risers shall be vertical or sloped from the underside of the nosing of the tread above at an angle not more than 30 degrees from the vertical. Open risers are permitted provided that the opening between treads does not permit the passage of a 4-inch-diameter sphere.
  9. Looking ahead to the 2018 IRC, which will soon be in effect here in CT, they have changed up the king stud requirements in comparison to the requirements of the 2015 IRC. https://codes.iccsafe.org/content/IRC2018/chapter-6-wall-construction#IRC2018_Pt03_Ch06_SecR602
  10. Joe, upcodes is a great resource for codes, they tell you what code is currently in effect and their books include state amendments as well. https://up.codes/codes/california
  11. The proposed adoption date of the 2018 ICC codes in Connecticut is 10/01/2020.
  12. IRC requirements can be overruled by manufacturer's installation instructions, you are 100% correct. R102.4 Referenced codes and standards. The codes and standards referenced in this code shall be considered part of the requirements of this code to the prescribed extent of each such reference and as further regulated in Sections R102.4.1 and R102.4.2. Exception: Where enforcement of a code provision would violate the conditions of the listing of the equipment or appliance, the conditions of the listing and manufacturer’s instructions shall apply. R102.4.1 Conflicts
  13. Bill, I respectfully disagree with you, you cannot apply IBC codes to a structure that is governed by the IRC. R101.2 specifically states that 1 and 2 family dwellings shall be constructed under the IRC. R309.1 doesn't provide a minimum slope. R401.3 provides a minimum slope of grade away from the structure (6" within the first 10'), but that doesn't apply to garage floors. There is also no code section in the IRC that states there must be a 4" elevation drop in a garage, it does not exist. You also cannot apply a code that was in effect years ago, you can only apply the code that is in effect
