Where can I build a shed on my property?

A shed constructed in the rear yard entirely behind the house is required to maintain a 3-foot side yard and 3-foot rear yard setback, including any overhang.*

A shed located in a side yard is required to maintain a 5-foot side yard setback.*

If you have a corner lot please contact the Planning Division at 952-826-0369 for further information.*

Sheds count towards the total building coverage for the lot. 


*In all the above cases if a shed is larger than 200 square feet a building permit is required.  You can contact the Building Inspections Division for further information at 952-826-0372 .
