HOW TO OBTAIN A BUILDING PERMIT IN CALIFORNIA
Prior to the recession some building departments in California could ask that the dome kit and other building kits be certified by the State of California. As a result of the recession & this requirement less homes were being built resulting in less property tax revenue. Some building departments are not requiring kit certification to stimulate new house construction.
American Ingenuity (Ai) has sold dome building kits into such California areas as Forest Ranch, Crestline, Borrego Springs, Lake Elsinore, Summerset and Hanford. An Aidome received a residential building permit in Riverside County in August 2015 & finished. Aidomes received building permit in Kern County in 2016. Currently Ai has preliminary building kit approval in the California Counties of Sacramento, San Joaquin, Riverside, San Diego, Trinity, Solona, Kern and Shasta and City of San Benito if all the building department requirements are followed.
