The 2018 Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings was developed by the American Wood Council's (AWC) Wood Design Standards Committee and has been approved by ANSI as an American National Standard. The 2018 WFCM is referenced in the 2018 International Building Code and 2018 International Residential Code.
