Default What are OK's building codes?

Can anyone give me a summary of the building codes for Oklahoma? There are no restrictions where we are going to live but I'm not sure if we do our own plumbing and electrical if we are going to have someone inspect them or not before the electric company will hook us up. Any info and tips are appreciated!

Codes are determined by the county and or city. Usually based on UBC. Anything to do with water (drilling a well, septic tanks, leach fields) must be done by a professional, or at least inspected by a professional. Usually/frequently before a RWD line is hooked up, you have to have a septic of some sort....I've seen that a couple of times.

Electrical varies by county. Usually the co-op will require at least the main breaker be installed by an electrician.

You can usually find a plumber or electrician who will pull permits and inspect and let you do your own work.

Concrete, framing, roofing, etc can be done by the homeowner without licensing. If you are repair an existing structure and you are the owner, you usually don't have to pull permits or get inspections......again, that depends on the county and municipal codes.

Putting in new hot water tank and would like to construct a wooden riser before the plumber brings the new hot water tank. The tank location is in the garage. How high does the tank need to be off the floor
to meet code?
