Do I need a building permit?
A building permit is required for any new construction, remodel, repair, demolition, change in use or conversion. Other than finish work, such as carpet or paint, generally a building permit will be required. In brief, you need a permit for most work to your property. When in doubt, call the Permit Center at 360-282-3156. Remember, a building permit is required before any construction or work begins.
