Hi, here is the City of Phoenix site for all of the information you need to get your permits. You will need approvals on the permits for the various stages pre construction and during construction. Click: http://phoenix.gov/APPINTRO/dsdwpa.html
You can go down to the offices to present your drawings and obtain the permit to get started.
If I can help you find a home or make an offer on one, just ask. Take care.
