Before You Begin Building

The longer we live in our homes, the more stuff we gather. We can never have enough storage space to keep our stuff organized.

Having a separate outbuilding is the best solution to store garden tools, lawnmowers, ladders, bicycles, and all the other stuff we cram into the garage.

Before you begin building find out:

  • Is a building permit required?
  • Are there any restrictions from the building department, zoning board, or homeowner's association?
  • How far from the property line, house, buildings, must the shed be built?
  • What size are you allowed to build?
  • What design is right for you?
  • What size is right for you?
