Editor's note: The Oklahoma Building Summit registered the most participants of any summit in its six-year history - more than 400, and raised the most revenue, which will turn back into producing a bigger event/show next year, Aug. 26-27 at Cox Convention Center. We asked several participants to share with us the top money saving tip they learned at the 2014 Summit:
"In my mind, build to the code and keep yourself out of court. There are a lot of lawsuits out there because people aren't building to the code. I think that's the thing that probably frustrates me the most. The people who don't build where there are no inspections don't follow the code. If you are building outside a municipality, you need to build to the statewide code. Just do the job because the rest of us are."
