A permit is required for basement finish projects if:
- Any walls are being constructed
- Sheetrock is being installed
See the basement finish handout for specifics for egress window requirements and the checklist for requirements before applying.
If you are putting a bathroom in the basement you are required to obtain a building, plumbing, electrical, and possibly a mechanical permit.
Note: You will be required to have smoke detectors in all bedrooms throughout the house at the final inspection for final approval.
