So you’re ready to break out the hammer and nails? Maybe you’re building a new house, or just embarking on that badly needed extra room you keep talking about. Wonder what it was like way back when you could just grab the toolbox and start construction on anything, anywhere? But in modern times we live in a society with rules and regulations, so you’ll need to abide by them and obtain a building permit from your local government entity. The application process typically requires the submission of plans and other data related to your project, so you’ll need to be thorough. Start by contacting the proper inspections department and finding out about its specific processes:
New Hanover County and the city of Wilmington
* Some municipalities in Brunswick County have their own inspections departments. Contact the county to find out which ones.
* Some municipalities in Pender County have their own inspections departments. Contact the county to find out which ones.
