Storage sheds that exceed 200 square feet require building permits. If the shed is within a floodplain, a floodplain permit is required regardless of the size of the shed.
Sheds are not allowed in a front yard. A shed no more than 100 square feet in area and 10 feet in height may be located no closer than 5 feet from the side and rear property lines. Sheds larger than 100 square feet or higher than 10 feet must meet the same setbacks as a house.
A shed of light frame construction, up to 600 square feet in area and 10 feet high, does not require a foundation with frost protection. However, it must still be anchored to the ground. Kits are available for this purpose. This is to prevent overturning due to wind, and is especially important for aluminum sheds.
