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.

My local regs are 18 inches from the property line for any detached structure.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
