Do I need a permit to finish a basement in Colorado?
When renovating a basement to add livable space in Colorado Springs, a permit is required and architectural plans must be filed with the DOB. Often times, people believe that when finishing a basement, a permit is not required since it is not technically visible from the street. This, however, is a misconception. When finishing a basement, everything from framing to electrical and plumbing will have to be inspected and approved. There are many requirements that people may not be aware of, including an egress window for emergency fire escapes. Many customers often find themselves in a rut with the city after they begin a basement finishing project without this knowledge. Often times, they will make headway on the project only to be halted by legal impositions and requirements.
