Two other sites also have good information on building codes:
MEC and IECC can both be purchased on-line and you may be able to find copies in
a local technical bookstore. The buildingteam.com site has building code
officials and contact information listed for most US cities and counties. Since
MEC and IECC are model codes that may be amended by the local jurisdiction, it
may be best to contact the local AHJ (authority having jurisdiction -- code
legalese) if you have a particular issue.
