New and replacement sheds, pools, garages, fences, driveways, porches, decks, gazebos, pergolas and similar structures; and room additions, interior remodeling, basement renovations, structural modifications; moving, eliminating or building walls or similar projects and roof shingle replacement ( 2 layer maximum). 

An example of projects that do not require a permit or painting, siding window and door replacement (when going with the same size openings), guttering and downspouts and landscaping vegetation. It is alwasy best to call for specific permit information.
