Dear PoP – Are There Restrictions To Building on Front Lawn?

IMG_5654

“Dear PoP,

I currently have a house that has no backyard but has ample front yard space for gardening. I was wondering if there are any restrictions on putting a small, tasteful storage shed in a discreet location on the lawn where I can store gardening supplies and perhaps a small grill. I’ve been trying to find DC’s restrictions on what you can and can’t put on/do with your front lawn, but haven’t found anything yet. Do you have any information on this or can you point me in the right direction? The property is not in a historic district.”

You can find info from DCRA here. But for the readers, has anyone done a project like this? Did you get a permit?
