Residential Construction Manual
This Residential Construction Handbook was compiled to assist the public in the permitting process and provide as much technical information as possible in one reference manual. The Permit and Resource Management Department has worked diligently on the Residential Construction Handbook striving to maintain the goals set forth in our mission statement. We believe that the Residential Construction Handbook provides the public with valuable information and assistance. This edition is published to incorporate the 2010 California Building Codes (CBC), California Residential Codes (CRC), County of Sonoma Ordinances, and other related codes.

|Although every effort is made to provide complete and accurate information on this website, users are advised to contact appropriate PRMD staff before making project decisions. This may involve contacting more than one section within PRMD (e.g. Building, Plan Check, Zoning, Well & Septic, etc.), since each section implements specific codes or ordinances which may affect your project.|
