What work requires a building permit?

Most people know that new buildings, additions to existing structures, renovations, demolitions, and temporary buildings usually require building permits and inspections. Less obvious projects that may require a permit include installing a swimming pool, deck and patios/fire pits. Also, tasks that involve electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and fireplaces require a building permit.
