Hi to all,
This question could have been a little better thought out (or a lot better) however knowing that, I said where the answer I was looking for could be found.
Rightly or wrongly I use the standard "Code Check" series on a daily basis when evaluating systems, and we base many of the QOD's on it. This in my mind is the minimum reference work that all inspectors should have, and yes it does not have all the information that the full IRC codes have (which generaly I concider to a level of knowledge beyond most home inspectors)
Any way the answer that I was expecting that we would get was 18'2" based on the table of rafter spans on page7 of codecheck.
The full reference can be found on Table R802.5.1(2)
