Please note that while we specialize in designing YardPods that are 120 sq. ft. or less, we also design larger structures. 120 sq.ft. is the maximum size that can be built in most areas without Planning and Building permits, however, there are exceptions, such as in some Agricultural areas.
In most areas, buildings will have to be designed and built to Code and will require Planning and Building Permits if they:
- Are larger than 120 sq.ft.
- Are used for “Living” that is as a bedroom, guest room, or ADU.
- Have plumbing or sewer services
YardPods does not work on projects that require full Planning and Building Permits.
The only exception is that all YardPods with electricity will need an electrical permit which is normally obtained by the appointed Contractor.
Hopefully the above information will help you to decide whether or not a YardPod could meet your requirements. Please call or send us a message, we are always pleased to provide free and helpful advice with no obligation and no sales pressure (we have no salespeople!).
Thanks for your interest in YardPods.
