The defined term, HABITABLE SPACE has been in Chapter 2 of both the IRC and the IBC for many editions. The IFC uses the IBC definition.   I did not go through all of the other I-Codes to see if HABITABLE ROOM is defined.

Where is that term used in the code?  (year, code/section number)

I am wondering what rationale precipitated the name change from “habitable room” to “habitable space” in the language of Code. Does anyone know?
