DVS thanks for your help, Like I said, I don't really know what the procedures are so thats why I asked for everyones help. Most of the work I've done with my boss we've never had to pull permits, Im almost positive. I tried to ask alot of questions and learn from him. Like the contractors license, in MN im pretty sure you don't need one for a landscaping business. But if your a carpenter most defintally you need your contractor license. So this is where my confusion comes in. Thanks again. any other input or advice would be helpful.
