Code Section

R404.1.5.2 Concrete Wall Thickness

The above referenced code section states "The thickness of concrete foundation wall shall be equal to or greater than the thickness of the wall in the story above. Does the "thickness of the wall in the story above" mean the thickness of the entire wall assembly ie framing, sheating, insulation, sheetrock? Or does it mean the thickness of the nominal framing members i.e 2x4 4 inch wall 2x6 wall needs to be a 6 inch wall 2x8 8 inch wall?
