Is there a site to look up codes? I am ordering the Code Check book (should probably splurge for the CD now that I think about it), but I had a few basic questions that are common sense write-ups, but I am not familiar with the codes regarding them (or even if there is one…)
Specifically, I am looking for:
1) do mobile home crawlspaces have to be vented on 2 sides or can they be fully enclosed?
2) I am sure I read somewhere that no structures (decks, porches, etc) can be permanently attached to the home, but I can't find a source.
3) It is common sense, but is there a code that says that a door that is elevated must have steps below it?
4) Does the Electric Code cover phone jacks within 1 foot of a sink (regular outlets should be GFCI, what about a phone jack?)
These are some of the craziest problems I ever thought I would see...and I know to write them up, but some back up from a real source would be nice.
