I'm reasonably sure that you would need a permit, and it is always better to do it that way in terms of resale value.

Call the city and ask for the zoning or building office and ask them. I would think a permit would be required if you are putting up walls and especially if you will be wiring the room for electricity. Still, the town building or zoning officer will know for sure.

Thank you for the answer. I also have a patio that I am going to convert into a sunroom. My family wants to enjoy the space in any season. We wouldn't want to get in trouble with the city, though, so I am going to call the zoning office.
