That's because the State of Texas adopts the 2006 editions of the International Building Code and International Residential Code. Zoning would probably be at the local government level.

Unless you want to pay for a copy of the IBC or IRC code books, you cannot view them online. Both of these code books address the physical construction of the house or building, and have nothing to do with the property itself. Zoning, subdividing property, minimum lot sizes, and other uses of property are controlled by the city or county zoning boards. The only way to find out if you can do what you want to do is contact the county and get the answer straight from the horses mouth. And even then, get it in writing because many times, you will get different answers at different times, from different people.

Thanks you've been helpful. We've built in Ca for 25 years I don't think any ones codes can be as regulated as Ca.

I had a home built with foamed in insullation. Attic sealed and foamed in. 3 furnaces in attic and are open combustion systems, not closed combustion. A fire hazard, carbon monoxide hazard, etc. What laws were broken here? What codes? If we hadn't stumbled onto this my kids upstairs could have been severely injured or killed by CO poisoning. I need leverage to get builder to fix this mess. HVAC guy shut down.
