Designed With Your Needs In Mind

Everyone has different needs for their backyard shed. Many just love the idea of having additional storage space. And yet there is plenty more you can do with this space. It doesn't need to be limited to storage. You can construct such a building as an outdoor art studio. Maybe you've always dreamed of having the ultimate home gym, but you don't have the space inside the house.

The beauty of having an outdoor storage building is you can design it for nearly anything and everything. At least, you can do that when you create the shed specifically for your unique needs.

Work With Location Specific Requirements

Every county, city, township, or HOA will have specific requirements you need to follow. That said, coming up with all these requirements and information can be a lot of work, so where do you start?

This begins by contacting the local utility companies to find out where the utility lines are on your property. You don't want to build a shed over a gas or sewage line because you could damage either of them, and the utility companies will need to access both.

Next, you will need to consult with your local government planning and zoning departments to identify what restrictions they have regarding the placement of your building. They can direct you on the specifics and let you know if and which permits are needed.

After confirming with your local government, if you have a homeowner's association - you also need to make sure you are in compliance with their requirements/restrictions. Some HOAs do not allow storage sheds on the property at all. Others will require them to not exceed a certain size, whether that is the height or certain width and depth. Other HOAs may not allow the building to have windows facing other properties. Or you may be restricted to the color. Every HOA is a little different so make sure you are in compliance.

Now you know where you can place your shed on your property and have an idea of what size you need, you can move forward with designing your perfect storage shed!
