hi folks ,
I'm looking at some land in Maine and wondering what zoning and code enforcement are like up there ?

I currently homestead 4 acres in the Ozarks and can do whatever I want  , County has no building codes for residential properties.  

the place I'm looking at is in Porter, Maine  , Oxford County.  any info on this would be greatly appreciated,  thanks folks!

One thing that may be a factor is MUBEC - <https://www.maine.gov/decd/meocd/bbcs/index.html>.  It looks like Porter's population is below the mandatory adoption level.  You might want to call the town office and ask for information about this and other zoning concerns.  MUBEC is fairly annoying in a common way for codes - there may be some benefits to following the code but there's a lot of red tape and fees involved in doing so.
