In 2006 New Hampshire adopted the IRC 2000 as the state-wide residential building code for one and two family dwellings. Since that time the State Building Code (including the Energy Code) has been updated to the 2015 codes. 2015 IRC Update

NHHBA has a copy of the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) book in a loose leaf binder format available to members for reference.
