Stiff sentence for failure to get permits
As a Home Owner DIY'er, I choose to pull permits & have inspections so that I can be assured that my home owners insurance will cover me. I can't imagine how to deal with an insurance claim mess for a fire (example) that may have been caused by something that I never even touched in my home, BUT is disallowed because I DID DO some electrical work (example) and never had it inspected. I need to be able to sleep at night.
