49154Re: permitting questions
- Apr 4, 2013Chris,
Not sure were your located, but suggest you contact you local Building Dept and request a "Certificate of Occupancy Inspection".
You may have to pay for this, but well worth it because you should get the minimum requirements in writing to determine if the required upgrades(if any)are feasiable (within your budget) or if you should look for another location.
Your municipality's adopted building code( usually the Uniform Building Code which can be ammended for special local conditions) will detirmine the "hazard" of your "occupancy" and the minimum requirements for your structure and occupancy to comply.
Hope you get a kind inspector who will give you a free pre-inspection before you spend money (I would have ).
Good luck and please let us know how this works out for you.
