1. Posted: 23 Jan 2020 16:24 - Cabin Construction / Shed plans
    .... I think we have decided to go bigger, 10X16. This was the size we were originally planing to buy as a shell to fix up. I had the pad built for it awhile ago. I think these plans will work. No building permits required where I am but I really want it to be nice and sturdy. It is going to have the washer/ drier in it and storage up in the lofts. I watched a few vi...

    Sad there is no layout plan for the floor heat... are there plans for the building showing the proposed interior partitions? Can you get anything from the local planning department from the original permit application? Any chance of contacting the...

    ...n and my many years in Scouting. They will be small and mainly for sleeping as we hope most of the time we would all be around the fire pit cooking and talking. We first thought of a bunk house type building but then thought several smaller / different cabins would be really neat. The land is almost like a little valley with a good spring in it with enough drop for a water-ram type pump...

    ...we supposed to reveal our location? Ha! We are on the southside a little less than 1000 feet off the lake. The zoning changes at 1000 feet and I had to move the cabin over a little bit to get my building permit approval. My rear neighbor is a golf course fairway at Izaty’s. During the summer months the woods are too thick to see anybody. It feels private. It reall...

9. Posted: 21 Nov 2019 15:01 - Cabin Construction / Foundation for 16x20 cabin
    Listen to what Brettny just said there. My understanding is that everywhere in NYS is covered by building code as well as sanitation rules. I do believe but could be wrong, that there is a special set of rules for a hunting or fishing cabin. If that is applicable that will come with a bu...

10. Posted: 17 Nov 2019 16:32 - Properties / where would you buy property
    Agree with what silverwaterlady said. If you want to avoid building permits and all the other bs that goes with it, get as far as you can from people.

Oh, does this project need a building permit? Inspections? If so re-using trusses may be a problem as the permit dept normally wants to see the engineering drawings with approval stamp...

    ...al weeks before there would be any further progress. I didn’t post a floor plan. My wife and I drew our own plans and I was intentionally vague with the plans that I submitted to the county for the building permit. I figured it gives me more flexibility.

    ...f the "Mountain men", Eustace Conway, had a primitive/ backwood school that he owned in NC. After the show aired, the county got a hair up their butt because he had build most or all of his buildings without permits. They closed him down. Well, some how the local legislator figured out that this was going to put an ugly spotlight on NC. He crafted the bill and...

14. Posted: 17 Sep 2019 14:10 - Cabin Construction / Looking for feedback on my design 18x27 cabin
    Have you talked to the town and/or the APA about your plans? Why 500sqft? Do you need a well, septic or site power to get a building permit in your town? Theres many questions to ask the people who give you permission to build. Outhouses are not legal any where in NY.

Now I just hope I can show some progress before my permits "runs out" (you have a 6 month time window to show progress as per the Ontario Building Code, which means having footings dug and inspected).

    ... the right zoning, there is a good chance you can still get all the permits you need for what you want. Go to the local zoning department and ordinances first. If they approve something, the county building department has to go along with it unless it is unsafe. I spoke with the county bldg department first also, and he told me they don't allow cabins, had to be a...
