Inspected a quad (4-plex) today, 2 up/2 down, built 1982, no separation wall (fire wall, smoke stop, whatever you want to call it) in attic. Does a 1-4 family unit require a separation wall? The one’s I’ve seen have all been in multi-unit condos and there’s no question regarding those, just a 4 family unit. I didn’t see anything in the 2003 IRC regarding this. Thoughts?
