In many states you do not need a building permit for structures under 200 square feet. We will guide you through the process of building with Faswall® so it is done correctly and safely.
Six Reasons to Build with Faswall Wall Forms
Typical process for outbuilding construction:
- Go to planning and zoning and see what restrictions you have to deal with as far as how large you can go, where on the property it will sit. See what you are allowed to do first.
- Make a drawing of your ENTIRE property with measurements from lot lines to existing buildings and proposed building. Include the dimensions in-between the existing building and new building.
- Submit the drawing to your code/zoning department to make certain that it meets requirements for a building permit.
- You will need separate permitting for running electrical and plumbing.
- Check for footing requirements if indeed you do need to obtain a building permit. Make sure the placement of all plumbing and electrical lines are where they need to be prior to pouring cement.
“We did a lot of research on various green building systems but settled on Faswall. Not only did it seem like the “greenest” technology, but the ease of building compared to other systems seemed like a good choice for an owner/builder. What we didn’t expect, but were totally delighted with, was how knowledgable and helpful the people at Faswall were. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
