Building Department


The Humboldt County Building Department is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY due to health concerns with  COVID-19 EFFECTIVE 3/18/2020.

I will continue to issue permits by email or by appointment.  We will continue to perform inspections.

Please call or email me and I will be happy to assist you.

Service is Our Number One Goal


  • Our staff has made a commitment to provide courteous, accurate, and timely service
  • Educate the public in building construction requirements
  • Continue to make improvements and gain knowledge which will assist the public


All rules and regulations shall be enforced consistently for everyone.

Why We Adopt & Enforce Building Codes by a Permit Process

Codes are adopted to safeguard life, limb, health, property, and public welfare.

By regulating the design, construction, materials, use and occupancy, egress, and location on the property, we can maintain a standard.

Remember- codes are a minimum standard.

Please make sure to contact the Humboldt County Building Department for permit requirements on your project.
