Navigating Permitting for Pole Barns: How Stately Simplifies the Procedure

Building a pole barn is an exciting endeavor, but before you can dive into the construction process, there's an essential step that must be addressed: obtaining the necessary permits. For many, the permitting process can be daunting, filled with confusing jargon and intricate regulations. This is where Stately steps in, providing a seamless experience and handling the complexities of the permitting process for you.

The Intricacies of Pole Barn Permitting

Permitting for pole barns isn't a straightforward process. Depending on your project's location and intended use, the type of permit you need varies. In a town, the regulations might differ from those in the country. This variability can make it challenging for individuals to determine the exact permits they require.

Furthermore, it's essential to be aware of common restrictions like setback, easement, height, and lot coverage. Each of these terms has specific definitions and implications:

  • Setback: The required distance between a building and the property line.
  • Easement: A legal right given to another owner, such as a utility company, to cross or access a portion of another's property.
  • Height & Lot Coverage: Regulations dictating the maximum height of a building and the percentage of the lot it can occupy.

Deciphering Code Regulations

1. Zoning Regulations: These dictate how a building can be positioned and its intended use, encompassing aspects like parking, signage, setbacks, and more. Before investing time in designing, it's crucial to check with the local zoning board.

2. Covenants: Enforced mainly by Homeowners Associations, covenants add an additional layer of rules atop zoning regulations. They provide specific guidelines about what's permissible within a subdivision.

3. Building Codes: Ensuring that buildings are structurally sound and safe is paramount. Post frame structures, especially those intended for commercial use, must adhere to these local construction codes.

Additional Permitting Aspects

Beyond the primary building permit, there might be a need for additional licenses. These could range from permits for utilities hookup, well drilling, septic system installation, or even specific construction timelines.

Moreover, when you're ready to get your permit, you'd typically need to submit a detailed application, including blueprints, site plans, and property descriptions. And, of course, there's the associated cost, which is influenced by factors like building size, segment, and jurisdiction.
