Many home improvement projects require a permit before beginning work. The permitting and inspection processes allow the town to ensure that projects meet minimum code requirements and structures are well constructed and safe for occupants. If square footage is added to your home without a permit and later you want to sell your home, the project will have to be permitted and inspected before you can close on the sale.

A plot plan is required for all permits. A plot plan is a detailed
sketch, survey or other drawing of your property that clearly
shows the property lines, any existing structures and the proposed
project. Please clearly indicate your project setbacks (the
distance your proposed project will be located from all property lines)
on the plot plan. Contact us to obtain setback information for your property.
