Step 6: Review Prepare to Build Suggestions

While your permit is being reviewed there are some things you can be doing to prepare for construction. Some suggestions are outlined below:

  • Confirm Contractor with a written contract
  • Only pay 10% down or $1,000, whichever is less as suggestion per CSLB
  • Avoid paying in cash
  • Confirm your supplier of materials with written contracts
  • If working with other neighbors, inform them of your possible timeline to rebuild
  • Enjoy community events, other fire survivor resources, and support groups
