Do I really need a permit?

Asked by BJ at 10:33pm on Dec 10 2018

Saw in your chart that accessory structures that are 1 story and 200 sq ft or smaller don't need a permit. However I need to fix up a detached garage that's 1 story but 300 sq ft. Do I still need a permit to fix up the garage? Planning only fixes, no changed walls or egresses, nothing involving electrical or plumbing.

I would suggest you call BSEED directly to ask this question. Their contact information is on the top of that permitting chart/resource.

Permits not needed for light renovation such as replacing vinyl siding pieces and tuck pointing brick work.
