New one and two family dwelling construction, commonly called the "one-stop permit process" is organized with the professional home builder in mind. This permitting process is intended to expedite the issuance of building permits for new one and two family dwellings. This does not mean that the process is not intended for the one-time owner builder. For a detailed description of the process, call the Building and Site Development Division at 573-874-7474 to learn more from a building inspector.
A building, electrical, mechanical and/or plumbing permit may be issued to any person to do work in a single family dwelling used exclusively for living purposes, including the usual accessory buildings and quarters in connection with such building, provided that the person is the bona fide owner of the dwelling, will occupy the dwelling for a period of not less than one year, will personally purchase all materials and perform all labor authorized by the permit, and that the applicant shall file an affidavit certifying that these conditions will be met.
The standards for the construction/alteration of a single family structure is the International Residential Code 2012.
