Do I need a permit to construct a storage shed?

A permit is not required for storage sheds 150 square feet
or less, however the building and zoning codes still apply to your project. The
storage shed must be structurally sound and placed the proper distances from
lot lines where applicable. Contact the City of West Allis Department of
Building Inspection and Neighborhood Services at (414) 302-8400 or review the
Revised Municipal Code, Section 13.23, online or at City Hall.
