When do I need a building permit?

Generally, a permit must be obtained prior to beginning any construction, erection, alteration, or repair to any structure other than ordinary repairs such as painting or appliance installations.  As a rule of thumb, if you are adding habitable square footage to a property or changing the use of the building, you will need a permit.
