THINKING ABOUT BUILDING?

This is the time of year that we all try to hurry and get our summertime building projects underway. Maybe you want to add on to your driveway...maybe you're thinking about adding a building to your property.

Before you build, you may want to find out if you need a building permit.

There will be a short series of webinars happening in June that can provide you with the necessary knowledge you need before you start your next building project.
