A permit is required prior to building, updating, or modifying any garage to ensure all structures are built in a safe and pleasing manor.
If this is a new garage you will need to submit a building plan, including an electrical diagram and plumbing (If applicable).
The cost of the permit will vary with the amount of working being performed.
Once the permit has been issued you may begin construction on your project. Once it has been completed or have reached any milestone outlined by the Building Inspector, the Building inspector will visit the site to ensure construction was completed to meet minimum code requirements.
This information can change at anytime. If you have any questions or concerns prior to construction please contact one of our Building inspectors at (262) 636-9121.
