A building permit is needed for all site built dwellings and accessory structures, as well as manufactured homes, moved in homes and all additions to structures. However, a building permit is not needed for small storage sheds 120 square feet or less, fences, play houses and play equipment. Agricultural structures need to obtain a permit in order to make sure they are not being placed in any floodplain and that they have the proper setbacks. There is no fee for any agricultural structure on 40 acres or more.
