The state requires new home applications to be submitted to them and then it is approved by local inspectors. They require the on-site contractor to be licensed and at least one crew member to hold a Dwelling Contractor Qualifier license.  You will also need the license numbers for your electrician, your plumber and HVAC installer.


Prior to working on this form get your sanitary permit from the county. There is a place to enter that permit number on this form. 

Also get a land use / zoning permit and be sure to enter those permit numbers on the state form.

 Oconto County Land Use and Zoning Permit is not covered by this application.       Call 920-834-6827 for more information.

After obtaining the above permits you can proceed to make an application for the local building permit.
