Examples of building permit drawings IRC compliant

I would like to produce a set of plans for a small house at I am designing. I am looking for a set of plans to see what details are required to meet the IRC. Building in Olympia Washington State in case someone has local knowledge.

That’s really a loaded question. The building department that has jurisdiction should have information regarding minimum drawing requirements.
Generally speaking, you’ll need:
Site Plan
Floor Plans
Building Elevations
Building Section(s) and/or Wall Sections
I try to provide the least amount of information to the Building Department that is needed for them to conduct the permit review. But, then again, I’m an Architect AND a general contractor…
I would try to get someone in the know at the building department on the phone to chat about general process and requirements.
