@annesley said Cochise county AZ...has an alternative builders program...you can opt out of all inspections and build whatever you want. This is remarkable. Here is the link to the building code referred to. Annesely, it does say that this "does not exempt owner-builders from statewide codes such as the plumbing and fire codes and regulations regarding smoke detectors, nor does it exempt owner-builders from fire codes adopted by fire districts or the County." How did you deal with these state codes?
