Limited Home Projects – Subject to Building Permit Exemption

Some home projects limited in size are subject to Building Permit Exemption when being done as a single activity or not in conjunction with a larger project. These include:

  • Painting, wallpapering, bookshelves, cabinets, tile or marble work
  • Fences and gates not higher than 6 feet
  • Roof, deck, and siding repairs when 100 square feet or less
  • Retaining walls less than four feet high when it can be demonstrated that there is no lateral pressure against it

Next Steps

If you think your project qualifies for Building Permit Exemption, please confirm this with the Belvedere Building Official. Also, note that most exterior changes require Planning Design Review even though a building permit may not be required.
