Note: State building code amendment in the 2018 International Building Code where the IDAPA renumbering affected what we talked about:

Section 3113.1, Relocatable Buildings, General
3113.1 General. The provisions of this Section shall apply to relocatable buildings. Relocatable buildings manufactured after the effective date of this code shall comply with the applicable provisions of this code; Title 39, Chapter 43, of Idaho Code; and IDAPA 24.39.31.
Exception: This section shall not apply to manufactured housing used as dwellings.


Idaho Code 39-4109 permits cities to adopt and amend the Building Codes that have been adopted by the Idaho Building Code Board.  If your city would like to make amendments to the Building Code that was adopted then you must provide notice to a list of organizations provided in Idaho Code 39-4109 (5).
