Found out something interesting today!
« on: April 11, 2004, 09:06:19 AM »
I'm sure some of you guys already know this, but for the ones that don't this could be useful information for ya. And it may not even apply in your area, so check first.

Anyway, I was talking to a friend of mine who is also a building inspector, about building my kiln and he told me if it was under 200 sq.feet I didn't need a permit, I thought it was 100 sq.feet and this I already knew.  But he also told me if you build it on skids so that it's portable (regardless of size) you not only don't need a permit but they can't tax you for it either.

In fact, it's not even considered real estate, it's personal property and is sold using a bill of sale if you ever sell your property. This would apply to any type of out building, not just a kiln.

Anyway, it was interesting to me and thought I'd pass it along to those of you that didn't know it. And for you old farts that already did, well it gave you something to do for 60 seconds besides watching your trees grow.  ;D  ;D

Lets see.  ::)  200 square feet would be an 8000 bf vac kiln that could dry around 728,000 bf of lumber a year. :D  :D  :D

In our county you are limted to 100 SF.

If you try to build something bigger on skids they will tax you for it until you go and appeal to the county...

I guess the good side is they are so lazy that it takes years before anyone realizes that you built something.  ;D

He told me a story about one guy that built a pretty good size shed on a foundation and made dummy skids for it so that it appeared portable.  Guess he got away with it for a long time until he told the wrong person about it and they turned him in. Some people just can't keep there mouth shut.  ;D
