Hope they keep missing it for your sake. I know more than a few people that have gotten hammered hard a few yrs later after doing what you did.

I paid $153 for the structural, electrical and roof on an addition I put on the house Lee County Fl. The inspections were all on time and the guys were easy to work with. They even let me E-mail them a picture for a correction sio I did not have to reschedule concrete.

You guys do understand that one of the MAJOR reasons for permits is so they have a notice so they can forward to the real estate assessors office to raise your value to tax you more right?

In some instances I would build first, ask for permission later....if needed.

Maybe, but the fine for an after the fact permit is 2x the original cost.

I don't lose sleep over it.. It's a detached pole barn.

Yeah this is out in the county...asked the neighbors before I bought any material.

If it was a home addition...no way in hell I wouldn't pull permits (we have an unpermitted addition...purchased that way.)

Last I checked CT was a democrat controlled state, they tend to be worse on taxes than republican states. The pubs are however trying to catch up when it comes to bilking taxpayers.

I'm building a 24 x 36 boat barn right now at my lake house. I'm thinking about putting a 3500 watt inverter generator in it--and not even hooking to the power grid. I could also go the solar route and LED lighting inside. Almost all power tools I now use are lithium powered anyway. I do have 2 long extension cords that can be hooked up to the house if I really need electricity up there.
Depends on what County you are in............Always check because it is changing all the time.

Don't confuse building permits with impact fees.

Last project was Two 2000ft2 town homes in Philly. $500k value each, building permits were around $900 then add in another 1-200 each for sprinkler/HVAC/Plumbing/Electrical so around $1600 total per unit.

Just finished my metal 40 'x 40 ' R.V. portal with a 12' x 30 ' enclosed section with bathroom here in North Alabama. Only permit required by county was septic tank permit , $75.00 and a perk test $350.00. Did my own plumbing and electric. Power co-op came out and hooked me up and said that they did not care what / how I did the electric as long as their end was done correctly. When I did ask the county what I needed to build this, they said no building permits were required except for the septic/ perk test. Everything went well and I have my building . They will come out to access the building for taxes. I took 1 acre out of the 45 acres for a home site, the rest will stay in aguicuture ,corn this year.
