74' Steel Boat Build, Front Yard, Tulsa ?!?

...so a guy decides he's going to build a 74' steel motoring/sailing vessel based on a Chinese Junk design and why not just build it in his front yard in Tulsa?
Sounds crazy right?
Turns out he has wicked fabrication skills and it so happens Tulsa, OK is right next to the Arkansas River which links to the Mississippi River.
The boat and project is called SV Seeker and he's got an amazing vision. He invites other people of various skills to come down and help build it. There's a whole series of videos and it can be kind of addictive to watch it...

Obviously no zoning laws. Have there been complaints? Anyone know how addressed if so?
