Answer: it depends on the area of ​​the building.

If you are building a wooden building larger than 20 m², it is compulsory to apply for a building permit. You must withdraw a building permit application from the town planning department of your town hall. Fill out the form, and drop it off at the town hall along with the requested documents: plans for the facade and roof, a written document describing the land and the project, photos of the land and a cutting plan of the project. Allow two months before obtaining the permit. If your construction does not exceed 20 m² and there is already construction on the land, you just need to make a prior declaration. You will also need to collect the form at the town hall and give some information on the land, the owner, the project and the work involved. The response from the town hall may take a month. Be aware that sometimes town halls are reluctant to issue building permits for wooden houses for aesthetic reasons. You too, send us your DIY question.
