Hey guys, I am building a fence to keep in my 1 1/2 yr old son, and I am not sure If I will need a building permit. I live in the city, and I already put up 2 post, but they were in the same spot as 2 old posts, so I could say I just replaced them... Anyway, I checked the City website and found this: "Permits are required for any new construction, addition, remodeling project, or structural alteration as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing projects. We do not require permits for finish work such as new cabinets, painting, replacing or covering shingles, patios made of brick or paving stones, or concrete slabs. You do need a permit for sheetrock, siding or a deck." Suppose a fence might be considered new construction.. I don't want to email them if I don't have to, so figured I would ask you guys, thanks in advance!
