New NC Codes coming soon! (again!)

It seems like just yesterday that we had a new version of the Code to deal with.  Well, hold on to your butts, because here we go again.

After much squabbling amongst legislators, home builders, code officials, et al, we appear to finally have a set of approved Codes in North Carolina.

The 2012 NC Codes are based on the 2009 International Codes issued by the International Code Council.  Most volumes became effective (available to be used on voluntary basis) in September of 2011.  That means that they could have been used, but weren’t mandatory until 2012.
