Let's Get Started.
Do-It-Youself Doesn't Have to Mean Do-It-Alone
Contact Your Local Building Code Official
Every city can be different when it comes to building code. You may need a building permit in order to get started on your project. Contact your local city hall and ask for your building department. They can lead you through applying for a building permit, and what you'll need to submit to the building code department.
Lean on Your Local Lumber Store, or ProDesk
You may need assistance in designing your project. A local lumber store, or building store pro-desk is an excellent place to find answers when deciding the layout of your project, and placement of the Diamond Pier.
While Diamond Pier isn't able to design your project, we are here and ready to help all our customers better understand how Diamond Pier works, and try to answer any questions we can about your specific project.
