Dear PoPville,

We are considering adding a front entrance to the basement of our row house. Our neighbors didn’t get a permit when they did theirs and had no problem. Another neighbor got a permit, worried about a potential fine if they didn’t do so. The project took about 5 days.

I’m inclined to take my chances. Any suggestions from the PoP community? Also, any suggestions for the project in general? I checked the years of archives and while basement dig outs has been covered there hasn’t been a discussion specific to basement entrances.
