Shed

Just moved to NJ from MD and man they make you jump through hoops, found out I need a permit to build a shed so I called and this was the list of runaround

First I need to get a copy of my survey (lucky I asked for copies when we bought the house)
Second I need to take the survey with the location of the shed to the health department so they can make sure it?s not on or close to the septic
Third I have to take it to the zoning board and they have to make sure it?s within the right-of-way and with the correct set back
Then if it?s over 100sf I have to have a set of plans of the shed and take them to the building department and buy a set of the building codes

All for a shed, a free standing no footers shed !!!! just seems a TAD bit over kill

shed

Yep- I had that same experience. It was enough of a hassle to make me think about just cleaning up/ cleaning out the garage instead...

Yea a lot of the building codes are out of control here. In most towns you can circumvent that with one of the plastic sheds. I know they are not nearly as nice but there are some available that are decent size and quality that look like the "real" thing.

I think they also have rules about it being 30ft or something ridiculous from the property lines. So you can't put it in the actual corner or back of your yard.
