Home Remodel Permit and Plan Requirements

Posted on November 12, 2019 at 5:00 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  I am planning on adding an egress window, replacing two old style windows that don't open, adding a wet bar and living room to a partially finished basement that already has a bedroom and bathroom. Mostly DIY framing and finishing drywall. Concrete walls will need to be furred out and insulated before drywall is added. Plumbing and electrical will be hired out.

What permits and plans do I need and where do I get them. I don't live in Laramie. Wife now occupies house that was built in 1924 with a major remodel about 2010 or so. Do you have an example of a basement finish permit and plan so I have something to go by? Project will be done over a couple of years most likely not all at once ….thanks
