Yes and yes!

Municipalities and insurers are becoming increasingly demanding when it comes to code and permits, and it can cost you big bucks to work without them.

To get permits, you will need plans, and they will need load calculations of the structural alterations, which is where the engineer comes in.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
