Do I need a Building Permit for a shed?

A permit is required for a shed. If the shed is 150 square feet or less, only a 5 foot minimum side and rear setback is needed. However, if your shed is greater than 150 square feet, the applicable setbacks for your zoning district will be required. All sheds located in flood zones must be anchored to a foundation on sonatubes to prevent flotation during a hurricane or flood.
