This seminar will focus on the conventional construction
requirements for detached accessory structures (i.e. garages, sheds,
etc.), residential decks, carports, and patio structures to ensure
compliance with the International Residential Code. The intent of this
class is to help building officials and plans examiners to know how to
quickly perform a review of these projects at the counter to see if they
are in compliance with the IRC and will also help building inspectors to
know what to look for in the field.
