Riley County requires a building permit but has not adopted building codes. During a building permit inspection the primary concern is determining the building is set back the proper distances from all property lines. The inspector does not examine how the building is being constructed. Consult a qualified contractor or building professional regarding industry standard construction techniques and proper installation of electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. The respective cities within the County vary regarding their building code requirements. Check with the individual city before starting construction.
