- Is there a certain size or square footage where a building permit is required?
- What is your zoning and allowed building forms?
- Is an engineer-stamped plan set required to pull a permit?
- Is there a limit to the number of structures you can add to property?
- What is the max lot coverage for all structures?
- Any wall or roof height limitations?
- What is the required distance between structures on your property?
- What are your setbacks (distance off the property line to the new structure)?
- Any special easements (utility, cable, access roads, open space, corner lot) that affect where your Tiny house can go?
