Description: If you are remodeling the outside of the mobile home (steps, porch, patio, plumbing, electrical, etc.), you obtain the permit through the City of Modesto's Building Safety Division.
If you are remodeling the mobile home itself, you will need to obtain a permit from the State Department of Housing and Community Development.
Examples: If you will be remodeling the steps, porch, patio, plumbing or electrical of your mobile home you can apply for all of those permits at the City of Modesto's Development Center.
After the Planning review process has been completed, building plans can be submitted for review. Building Plans are reviewed to assure that construction meets basic life safety. Depending upon the type of project, and the complexity of construction, our staff will examine your plans for conformance to these requirements.

When your plans are approved and at the time you pay your fees, the Building Safety Division will issue the required permits for your project.
Before covering up or building over any permitted work, you will need to call and request an inspection. Inspections are required to ensure that all work was completed correctly, based on building and safety codes currently in effect.
If an encroachment permit was required for your project, schedule off-site inspections with the Public Works Department at (209) 577-5452.
