Gov Jay Inslee's Construction Guidance - Stay Home, Stay Healthy Proclamation (20-25)

THE COURTHOUSE ANNEX OFFICE IS CLOSED TO PUBLIC WALK-IN TRAFFIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:  

  • BUILDING INSPECTIONS WILL CONTINUE AS NORMAL FOR UNOCCUPIED HOMES.
  • IF YOU NEED TO DROP OFF A BUILDING PERMIT APPLICATION AND PLANS WE HAVE A DROP AREA JUST INSIDE THE FIRST SET OF DOORS FOR THIS PURPOSE. 
  • PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS (509) 427-3900.

Our Building Division helps keep our homes, schools, offices, and other buildings safe for public use. We review and inspect all construction projects that require building permits in the unincorporated areas of Skamania County and the City of Stevenson.

Building permits are beneficial to you and your community. By obtaining the required permits you are not only protecting the financial investment in your project, you are also guarding against potential hazards of unsafe construction.

NEW! Mechanical, Plumbing and Re-Roof permits are now available online! Apply, Pay and Print! Go to our online permit center and create a log in to get started. If you are needing one of these permits for work to be done on a manufactured home, please contact WA State Department of Labor and Industries for permitting.
