Putting up a Garden Shed & Up grading Fence/Gate
If I am reading the DC building rules correctly I can apply for a “pocket Permit” on-line if I am fixing/upgrading a existing fence. It is currently 5ft high chain-link and on the property line with the neighbors. I would like to add a wood privacy fence over the existing fence. And build a rolling gate across the parking pad/space off the alley. We would like to do this our selves to save some money. Any feed back on if I need a new building plan or permit if there is already a fence there? Does it matter if I have to use new posts vs the current ones? (Not sure if I can use the current posts with out taking down the chainlink or needing to be in the neighbors yard. So, I might need to had need posts.)
Also, is there a size of garden sheds one can put on a single family home lot with out needing a permit? I can’t seem to find the specifics. Please share a link if you have one.
