I'm an architect in california.  Have done plans for a permitted cob  
home under the unique Class K  in Mendocino County, Ca.
Jurisdictions are typically subject to the International building  
code, which does not recognize cob as a standard way to build.  You  
need to check the Lincoln County code requirements to see what they  
will require for a premit.
Calling it a remodel will most likely not make the building code  
requirements any less, including electrical.
Will be happy to dicsuss this further.
