Building and mechanical permits through the Town of Yarrow Point are required for most work. The Washington State and Yarrow Point Building Codes basically require permits for everything, and then they list some specific exemptions. Roofing, decks, furnaces, A/C units, water heaters are common things that need permits. Exemptions to a building permit include things such as painting, trim, cabinets, play structures and some small garden storage buildings. A value to building permits is assurance that your project meets minimum construction standards which then results in safety, value and longevity. Building permits generally require a review from the Planning, Engineering, and Building Departments. Mechanical permits are often issued over the counter.
