In most cases and in most Utah cities, a building permit is not required on any storage shed or accessory building that is 200 square feet or smaller.    However, there are some cities that require a building permit for any shed larger than 120 square feet and even some cities that require a building permit on any shed regardless of size.  Some of these cities do not charge a fee for shed building permits while others do.  Some cities have setback requirements stating that any accessory shed or structure must be a certain distance from your property line.  Others have limits on the height of a shed.  Every city is different on how they enforce their ordinances.  Some cities will only assess a fine for the amount of the permit for failure to acquire the correct permit.  Others may require you to move or tear down any structure that does not meet their requirements.  We recommend checking with your local building ordinances to determine if a permit or setbacks are required to build a storage shed on your property.

 

Our most popular shed  sizes that maximize the allowable square footage of a shed without requiring a building permit are as follows:

for 200 Sq. Ft. = 10' X 20' or 12' X 16' or 14' X 14'

for 100 Sq Ft. = 10' X 12'

Note: We are still in the process of building this database.

We do not currently have building permit information for all of the cities and counties listed above.  If you cannot click on the link for your city, we recommend that you contact your local building department.
