Do I need a permit to build a playhouse or a garden/storage shed?
You do not need a permit for a nonhabitable one-story detached accessory structure used as tool and storage sheds, playhouses, and similar uses, provided the floor area does not exceed 200 square feet and the height is no more than ten feet measured from the finished floor to the average height of the roof surface. All detached accessory structures must maintain a minimum of five feet set back from rear and side property lines.
