How Do I Build an Accessory Building?
Section 6410 and 6411 of the Zoning Regulations govern the number, size and location of accessory buildings in residential zoning districts. These regulations allow for the construction of only one (1) detached accessory building. A recent (February 2015) interpretation allows the construction of one additional detached building in addition to a detached garage. No building permit is required for the construction of an accessory building with a roof area of less than 120 sq. ft. in size, 8-feet in height or less, with no utilities or electricity, and complies with Zoning Regulations (specifically those regarding setbacks, lot coverage, and floor area).
