    seeing as how you dont have to spend time or money yet play with a 4x8 assembly table with storage around it in threw darrens sketch up pic.. i never regretted that sise rennie. and using a large outfeed table as a assembly bench works well to.

    Having a roll around table, 4 X 8, that can double as an out feed makes sense. I can push my small table, which is actually a Kreg pocket hole worktop, against a wall.

    Completed the 10 page zoning permit request for the building of the storage shed. Had to measure every building, setback and building height along with locations of septic field and well head. Also had to draw a site plan showing all of the above and submit framing plans and elevations for the shed. seems like a lot of hullabaloo for someplace to store a couple of shovels and a lawn mower.

    Here's a sampling of what I supplied. Overkill, perhaps, but with the government you want to cover all the bases.

    Sure looks thorough. Would you have to go through all of this for one of the pre-built sheds on a skid they can drop off in your back yard on a bed of gravel?

    Yes, my understanding from the zoning official is that such a process is required for any building on any property.

    According to the officials around here, swapping out an electrical outlet or a hot water heater would require pulling a permit too.

    Our local building code reads:
    1. Building permits. A building permit shall not be required for the following:
    a. One-story detached accessory buildings used as tool and storage sheds, playhouses, and similaruses provide the floor area does not exceed one hundred twenty (120) square feet.

    Obviously yours is larger than that, I didn't see that when I first asked.

    I think they bumped up our shed size from 120 to 200 square feet now without a permit or inspections, so Hey, why not build 10 of them!

    The paperwork I had to complete was for zoning, not building. We can go to 200 sf without a permit to build or the requisite inspections. All buildings on the property have to meet with zoning requirements such as setbacks, height restrictions, wetlands, etc.

    I believe I have met all those requirements and should get the ok to proceed.
