Mitchell County requires that structures must be built to the International Building Codes. A Georgia State License is required for a contractor, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical work unless the homeowner is performing the work on their own single-family dwelling (the homeowner will be required to sign a liability waiver). The owner or builder has to apply for permits with the Mitchell County Building and Zoning Department and pay all required fees.
