1. Posted: 1 Apr 2020 18:34 - Cabin Construction / Skid size & fastening
    ...wer, but I was hoping to get lucky with someone who would take an interest in a small project within my context. Brettny - the point about my search for help is I DON'T have an inspector. I am building in a tiny rural municipality without permits and inspectors. This has pros and cons. Mostly pros. But the con is not having expert review. That's one of the...

    A search for building permit with the county name should bring up their rules. Most often there is a size from 100 to 200 sq ft that does not need a permit as long as yo...

    I can't see them making you tear it down. I've worked on some pretty crappy homes and the most they'll do is add to your building permit/inspection things they would like to see done and they've been very reasonable. They do look at satellite imaging and if you give them a hard time they...

    ...e doesn't. I am waiting for a dry, windy and sunny day to do this. Quoting: ICC. That varies a lot in different places. That exception also usually includes wording referencing "accessory building" or something similar. That means the exempt small building can be built when the new small building is an accessory to a larger, and properly ...

    Quoting: waldeniteI am limited in footprint size by building codes and am unable to go bigger at this time. That may very well be correct and it may very well also be a misinterpretation of the building permit...

    Quoting: BrettnyWhy don't you ask the county/town building dept? There going to be the one who issue the permit or hand you the violation. exactly.

    ...tion is a $300 permit fee. The others are a $550 permit fee. They all require a licensed person to come out and test the soil for an additional $300-600. If using one of these systems, you have to include this with the building permit for the home. The state of Arizona allows automatically permitted toilet...

9. Posted: 2 Mar 2020 14:02 - Cabin Construction / Collar ties
    Quoting: BrettnySome thing to keep in mind is that a town/county may not tax the loft as livable space. How much head room or if they allow vertical walls in it I'm not sure. Building code has headroom limits on habitable spaces. IRC chapter R.305.1 Seven feet in the minimum with exceptions that cover sloped ceilings and bathrooms. Exception #1. For rooms with ...

    Where outside of the adk park? Many people here build/drop off a small shed on there property to start, me included. The town/county most likely has a max building size before needing a permit. Call them and ask. We are just south of Utica.

    ...I started looking again, even driving up to a plot in Remore Ont for one that looked promising. But it did not work out. Side track to a plot in Nicaragua (Where my wife is from) whare we have been building on since 2014, and should be done by the end of the year - I again turned to looking for a plot - We plan to be 6 months down there and 6 months at whatever we found up north. Was ...

    Quoting: ICCStrong winds don't cease to blow because there is no code enforcement. Strong winds are the reason for the structural elements of building code. Good luck I was saying there are no codes to follow to say that I don't have to wait on any permits to be signed by a govt official. If the permi...

    You will likely need a building permit which is a tax and it also alerts the assessor of property there will be a structure on the land which will increase the taxes. Even if there is no b...

    ...lin, is this. 1) A "True" unincorporated township (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unorganized_area#Ontario ) you can build what ever size you wish, but you still need to conform to Ontario building code (Stud size, spacing, ventilation, roofing etc etc) and septic rules (MOE specs) must be adhered too. 2) There are some exceptions for some townships that are pseudo unincorpor...

    ...hat you can buy online at many places. For my cabin I didn't need "formal" plans, so I personally just drafted up the layout with a cross section view and attached the layout with my building permit. I spec'ed out the joists/rafters/insulation/etc. on a separate sheet of paper and it was approved without any revisions necessary. My sketch was to sc...

18. Posted: 28 Jan 2020 12:27 - Properties / Building code requirements for seasonal cabins ontario

19. 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...

    ...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...

    Actually I will put the refering section of 96-01 - Specific to Dawson. ============ Temporary Uses Permitted 20.

    So talking to the county clerk - (Well clerk for the island) Manitoulin island townships that are incorporated - Trailers are permitted after building permit issued for up to 2 years with $300 fee per year. Must be removed once completed build. Unincorporated (Dawson and Robinson) are allowed...

    ...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...

27. 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...

28. 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.

    ...the trusses. Keep the supports more or less at the same position they are at now. That's assuming the DIY builder followed the design parameters in the first place. 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. The building inspector has been pretty laid back. The two small windows in the back side of the cab...
