What are the rules on yard shed placement?

7 posts in this topic

I am looking to put up a storage shed (10x12) in my back yard this summer. I would like to put it in the back corner. What are rules for easements / distance from the property line, etc? Does it make a difference if it has a concrete floor or wood floor?

Thanks!

I would call your local building inspector or city hall for ordinances as each city differs on placement. As for concrete pad or wood floor. A concrete floor makes it as a fixed out building and in some areas your property tax may go up but with a wood floor it would not be considered a fixed structure and therefore tax wont go up.

Thanks. I went to the Savage web site and found exactly what I needed. In my case a 5 foot set back from the side property line and 10 feet from the rear.

You may want to talk to your neighbors just to make sure none of them get anxious about it. A few phone calls could keep noses from getting out of joint and creating problems.

Also check for rules on size requirements. In Eden Prairie we are limited to the square footage the pad can be. In order to get the storage wanted we built a 12ft ceiling on one side so I could hang things up high.
