BUILDING PERMIT/YAVAPAI COUNTY
What Size Building Requires a Building PermitDo I need a building permit for a building under 500 sq. ft. with power or sewer in the County?
If the building is going to be habitable, you must have a room/area for cooking, bath and sleeping. A floor of finished material and power and heating must be installed and yes, you would be required to pull a permit. If the building is not habitable, i.e., for storage, a garage, cart port or workshop, you do not need a permit. However, if there is any electrical involved for the non habitable room, a permit would be required for the electrical work, or if the room will be heated and cooled, a permit would be required for the heating and cooling work.
