Deck Construction Based on the 2021 IRC

My second edition ICC book is ready for preorder and should be shipping to folks by the end of April.

Over 250 deck-related code sections from the 2021 IRC, including some 2018 provisions and significant changes explained. Deck specific commentary. Tons of illustrations.

The first edition was based on the 2009 and there wasn't much attention to decks in the code. I have been involved with developing deck codes in 2015, 18, and 21. So now there was much more to share and write about.

I'm better with deck codes than I am with memes or marketing. I promise.

Here is the link to preorder. Thanks.
