Application Submittal

How do I apply for a permit and what do I need to bring when applying for a permit?



Permit processing can be a simple process or quite complex depending on several factors. There are numerous types of permits (see the column to the left) depending on the scope of work for your project. 

A typical application will require:

  1. Floor plan layout with all room uses labeled
  2. Foundation detail
  3. Wall Framing / Cross section detail
  4. Floor framing (If using an engineered floor system, provide the engineering.)
  5. Roof framing detail (If using a manufactured truss system, provide truss layout and individual truss sheet detail which must be stamped by engineer licensed in Washington State)  
  6. Elevations
  • Engineering or calculations (stamped by engineer licensed in Washington State)

Are you proposing to do the work yourself as a homeowner or hiring a contractor?



Many homeowners are capable to do alot of the footwork themselves from applying for the permit, drawing their own site plan, or plans; or  typically hire a professional. 


In addition to the application for construction, a checklist is also required. 

See the left side column for additional permit applications and checklists.
