Building codes
« on: February 18, 2013, 08:29:39 PM »
Perusing the exceptions for the local laws on requiring a building permit:

Examples:  The following is a list of items that do not require permits:

One-story detached accessory structures less than 120 square feet of floor area.
Window awnings supported by an exterior wall on a dwelling unit, when not projecting more than 54 inches.

So I'm thinking a 10x12 "shed" that's 10' tall, with beds suspended near the ceiling, a false floor 6' above the actual concrete foundation for storage... with dual cinder block walls 3' apart, filled with earth, solar panels, propane stove.

Of course, if they can outlaw a garden...

One thing, make sure you don't extend power, phone, any utilities, because then it becomes a building "extension" and falls back into a lot of building codes, again.

Got it! If you're gonna make a fallout shelter garden shed, may as well make it off-grid anyway.
