New 1 & 2 Family Dwellings

As daunting tasks go, building a new 1 or 2 family home is certainly up there on the list. Permitting is the 1st official step and can be one of the more confusing ones. The City of Sun Prairie would like to try and make this portion of the process a little less stressful. Below is a detailed, step by step breakdown of the items needed to permit the dwelling right through to all of the inspections needed to verify that the structure is safe and up to city and state codes.
City ordinances and state statutes require that the project be inspected at different times throughout the construction process. The permit holder (company or individual who fills out and pays for the permit) is responsible for contacting our office to schedule these inspections. Inspections may be requested in 3 ways:
