Building Codes for structures outside of city limits
Posted in the Barbourville Forum
#1 Oct 27, 2013
We are in Knox County outside the city limits (far out)and would like to one day build on our land. Nothing built there will be using city utilities such as electric, water, or gas. Can I just build? It's not a business. I just want to know if I have the right to build on my land whenever I want as long as I am not building something that will have city utilities. I'm thinking that cuts out the need for an inspector? I see the need for that if electricity is involved because of a fire hazard. People would assume if they own land they have a right to build whatever...but maybe we aren't as free as we would like to think. Does anyone have any knowledge about building outside the city limits in Knox County? Thank you!

I built a remote cabin on my property , no permits. If you want electric hook up it will need an inspected sewer or septic system.
