Building Permits Required Prior to Start of Construction Projects


Snow piles are disappearing, and spring is upon us. Many residents are beginning to make plans to begin outdoor projects, but the Pulaski County Building Inspector reminds you to apply for building permits before you begin building projects.

New construction of any type needs a permit. New houses, barns, garages, sheds, porches, decks, and the placement of modular homes need a building permit. Room or building additions, remodeling, electrical upgrades, plumbing, HVAC systems, above-ground swimming pools and any commercial project will also need a permit.

Fees for such projects vary depending on the size of the project.

Contractors need to register in the building administrator’s office.

Any questions should be directed to Pulaski County Building Inspector David Dare at (574) 946-7858.
