Always check to see what zoning codes apply to your area. Rural areas are usually more lax, but especially for people who live in cities, towns, or subdivisions, there may be restrictions on size, color, and sometimes even style that have to be approved by a council or business official before ordering. In many places, any building bigger than a small garden shed will require a permit, so it's necessary to check with the local government or your subdivision board.
We understand that pulling permits and checking into zoning is something that you would normally never have to do unless you are a contractor or builder. We've pulled this information to help you with the process and make it less complicated.
Because we value your business, we will take responsibility for any manufacturing-related deficiencies. Your satisfaction is our guarantee.
All buildings manufactured by Dakota Storage Buildings, LLC come with a top to bottom limited warranty certificate. Warranties are non-transferable and apply only to the original purchaser and location. Relocating products by any party automatically invalidates these warranties.
These warranties do not apply to any Dakota Storage Buildings, LLC product or part which has been damaged by adverse weather conditions, earthquake, hail, wind, fire, water, flood, earth movement, accidents, theft, vandalism, an act of God, or any instance customarily covered by homeowners insurance.
When used appropriately and maintained properly, Dakota Storage Buildings, LLC guarantees that products will remain structurally sound. Normal wear and tear, fading of exterior surfaces, and general aging, which is characteristic of any outdoor product that is exposed to natural elements, is not covered under the warranties.
As with any building which is located on top of the ground, settling may occur. Buildings need periodic cleaning, painting, and caulking, and vegetation should not be planted around the edges of the structure, which could lead to restricted ventilation.

After securing the proper building permit, the next step is to lay a level foundation. This can be done in a four-step process.
Visit our Site Preparation page for more details.
The most important thing about a foundation site for a shed or garage is that it's perfectly level. If the base is unlevel, the building frame can twist, and opening doors and windows can be difficult. We recommend compacting several inches of Class 5 (road gravel) or granite fines.
