Below are the 3 questions that should get you everything you need to know about your town regulations.
1. How large of a shed can I have built before I need a building permit?
2. What are the set back requirements (distance from the property line and other structures on the property)?
3. Are there any height restrictions? (some towns wave the set back requirements if the shed is under a certain height)

What is required for site preparation?
For a shed to remain structurally sound over a long period of time it needs to have a solid base. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but some of the most common are: solid cement blocks, installing a stone pad, or installing a concrete slab.
If the area that you would like to install your shed is significantly out of level (12 or more inches), we recommend consulting with your local Urban Sheds builder to determine the best solution for the shed base. The most common solution is to have your local landscaper install a level stone pad.
Many shed companies try to sell a stone pad with every shed. This isn’t necessary. One of the advantages of having your shed built onsite, is the ability to distribute blocking evenly under the shed before it is built. When sheds are delivered fully assembled it is difficult, if not impossible, to properly install blocking under the shed; so many shed companies will push to sell a stone pad with the shed so it’s easier for them to deliver. (For northern locations, consider designing your shed with larger overhangs and having a crushed stone border installed around the shed to prevent frost heaves)
Pretty much any site will need some adjustment to get a solid and level foundation. For shed sites that are up to 12” out of level we can adjust with a gridwork of cement blocks before constructing the shed. If you are ordering your shed using our 3D Shed Configurator, be sure to check the box for Blocking to Level the Site.
If you would like site prep. recommendations from one of our builders, you can schedule a free consultation here.
