    You are welcome.  Not sure of your familiarity with codes -- if you need to get up to speed with them, taking a project or two in your workplace and recreating the typical code review for each is a great way to get a general handle on the IBC.

    Hi Anton,
    No such conversion. Can't see your chart, but take a look at table 503 in the ibc 2012.
    The max height in feet is right under the Type.

    Kurt, a portion of that was the table (503) was what was given on the test. Exactly, and then they asked for a height. I figured there must be some sort of exchange since the table gives stories and the answer was required to be in feet?

    Kurt,

    Thanks a lot. I CAN'T believe I missed that earlier. I was re re reviewing that table and finally saw what you had highlighted last evening. I was laughing at myself and mad at myself for not seeing what was right in front of m face. Thanks a lot for the follow up and help.
