    3. Must include room labels (bedroom, rec room, stairs, etc.) 
  5. Engineer stamped drawing or letter for any walls being removed or other clear evidence (as determined acceptable by plans examiner) that the walls are not bearing. This can be accomplished by obtaining the services of a structural engineer to provide a letter stating that it is not load bearing/structural.  It might also be accomplished without an engineer if you can provide satisfactory documentation/evidence that this is not a bearing location.  If you can provide some photos/text that show that there is no load path from above and no load path to the basement from this location, I will be glad to review them and let you know if they are satisfactory evidence or if the engineer letter will be required)
