Can anyone tell me if a structural engineer is required for Leon County? I've read that they are required in coastal Florida, but nothing clear about Leon County.
 
Would you mind telling me what you paid for one?

Of course! Leon County, requires a design professional to perform the wind load analysis (engineer or architect) and depending on the soil test, an engineer might have to design your foundation.

Structural engineers range in price from $.15-$.25/sq ft under roof. Don't know anyone local, but you can use a licensed engineer from anywhere in the state of FL.

All info for Leon County can be found here: leonpermits.org/permits/forms

Note: If you are building within Tallahassee city limits, the city has their own permitting department.

An engineer is used for the structural review of the building and design pressure. It is not required, but if an owner-builder engineers his own house, there is much that he needs to know. Sometimes the building department may request written calculations, depending on the building requirements.

Truss tie-down for section 1605 are another issue. I suggest you use an engineer. Prices vary; get quotes on the project first and always tell them that you want to pay one price. Many engineers will give you a price, then after submitting to the building department if they miss something, either by neglect or on purpose, they charge you again for what they should have done in the beginning. The engineer will sign each structural plan. Commercial is a little different.
