Code Check: Framing Guidelines

Requirements for floor and wall framing, and more

Code Check is a concise guide to the most commonly cited code violations encountered by building inspectors. This compact reference contains residential construction-code information gathered from more than 2,500 pages of major model U.S. building, plumbing, and electrical codes, and is completely updated to reflect the 2000 International Residential Code.

In this excerpted section on framing, you'll find guidelines for underfloors, slabs, steel framing, floor framing, and wall framing.

Redwood Kardon, Doug Hansen and Mike Casey have been the authors of the Code Check series for more than 10 years. Paddy Morrissey is the series illustrator. Learn more about the Code Check team by visiting their Website at and visit to view all the books in the Code Check series.
