http://hometips.gregvan.com/building_department_and_inspectors.htm The one question that I get asks often about construction and home building is do I need a building permit, but rarely do these people think to ask me about how to actually get one. I hope this video helps anyone who’s planning on remodeling their home, building a new home, remodeling a kitchen or bathroom or even building a storage shed or garage on the property. You’re building permits can be picked up at your local building and safety Department which is usually located in one of your city government or County government buildings. To find your local building department and get a building permit, type in your city’s name into any Internet search engine. For example, if you live in the city of San Diego, type San Diego Building Department into Yahoo, MSN or Google.
