Disclaimer: This is just a web site I came across in my search to learn more about building codes and how they restrict or help you build an alternative dwelling. I'm not advocating you buy or believe anything from this site. I just found it very interesting.

Please keep in mind that ..
" A house built to code is the worst house you can build"

...Codes were intended to protect you from the shoddy, unsafe practices of contractors, and builders. As an owner builder you will want a safe, durable house for all your efforts. The comments submitted below are listed by state, by individual. Each gave information to the best of their knowledge. Only a few counties are listed in each state. In addition there are comments here on the costs of permits. This will give you an overview of expected expenses in some areas.
