A garage, a carport or a shed exceeding 200 square feet requires a building permit. The addition/garage handout (PDF) has information regarding allowable size and construction codes. Further information on sheds is available on the shed handout (PDF)
Regardless of shed size, placement of the shed must meet the single-family lot guidelines (PDF). If a contractor is constructing the structure, the city requires the contractor to be licensed with either the state or the City of Maplewood.
