Single Family Basement

Your Single Family Basement Resource Center

In order for an application for a Basement permit to be reviewed, it must include all required information. An application without complete information, including all required plans, may not be processed until the submittal is complete.  Whether you are building new, or repairing, restoring or refinishing your home, the work and goal can be a rewarding experience and we want to help make it as easy as possible!  The following can be found on our Download Permits & Applications, Licenses and Guides page, and are required for your Basement needs:
