If you are building a new home, planning to make improvements or additions to your existing home, or plan to build any type of accessory building on your property, a permit will need to be issued for this construction.  The permit issued, and the inspections associated with them, are to assure the work being performed is done according to the Building Code in effect at the time of construction.  By complying with all codes in effect, you are assured that your construction is structurally sound and safe, and that all systems within your dwelling (electrical, plumbing, gas and mechanical) are performing adequately.
