Hopefully by now you are aware that the State of Oklahoma is developing the first ever statewide residential building code. OSHBA is closely monitoring the work of the Oklahoma Uniform Building Code Commission (UBCC) and will regularly post to this blog the latest information, so check back regularly.
Currently the UBCC is reviewing the International Residential Code (IRC) 2009 for adoption. There are some items in the code that OSHBA feels is not in the best interest of Oklahoma citizens at this time. One item in particular is mandatory residential fire sprinkler systems. There are several more items worth mentioning, but I will reserve those for the future. So check back soon.
