Residential Fire Sprinklers

Hi all, I am restoring an old home (70yrs) that is all wood. I would like to install a residential fire sprinkler system. I am a builder so have the ability to do the installation myself. Are there any places to find installation design and instructions?

What would be the best forum to ask this question?

Possibly plumbing.

Depending on your local, you may have to have the system designed (at least) by someone qualified. The requirements for fire spinkler design are pretty finicky.

I'm not trying to discourage you. I work in the fire protection industry, and I would have trouble doing the layout of a sprinkler system.
