What's the best place online to find your local building codes?

Call your Building Department.

Building codes...

Like already said, you need to contact your local municipality to find what code they use and what version/year they've adopted. You'll also want to ask if there are any sections of the code that they have opted out of. Then you can go on-line to purchase a copy, or sometimes the local library may have it.

Once you've determined which codes apply to your jurisdiction you may be able to find copies on this website. https://bulk.resource.org/codes.gov/
