Permitting & inspections are required for remodeling of existing construction or the finishing of storage areas into living space (finished basements).  A drawing of the proposed remodel must be submitted with the permit application. Since the remodeling process can be anything from running a new water and electric to bring the laundry to the main level, to completely gutting a building down to bare studs for a complete overhaul. Please contact the building department at 563-263-0482 or

to discuss the scope of your project with a building inspector and find out what submittal drawings/documents will be required.
