I have a day light basement (meaning fully finished, has a full entry directly from backyard). I am planning to add a sink and refrigerator there so we can hangout with friends there. It’s confusing whether I need any permit for this. I would not go through that process if it’s not a serious thing. A lot of people told me counties barely notice this and a lot of people do it all the time with out contacting the county administration.
I would like to know what’s the opinion of this sub? Also, does it increase the property value and thus taxes ? Property taxes in seattle area is already insane.
