Most jurisdictions will require property owners to obtain a building permit before they erect a new structure on their land. This is usually true even if the planned building is small or just for personal use.

We highly recommend that you check with the local authorities in your area before you start doing any prep work at your building site. This includes pouring your foundation, as you may need approval for this as well. You do not want to clear land and pour a slab only to find out that your municipality will not allow you to erect a building at your chosen site.

You should also consult your local codes if you want to run electricity or plumbing to your building.
