I'm wanting to build a tool shed/barn and need opinionsof size

obrionusaMay 18, 2013

The newer looking metal barns are more attractive than they used to be. I'm thinking of building one 12'X12' with a 5' lien two on each side. This it right side my swimming pool to hold lawn chairs, chlorine, solar blanket, mower, pool stuff and more. I was wondering if it would look funny to be more longer than wide. I thought you could go twice your width than length and still look alright. Whats your thought? I need a building permit if I go any bigger than 12X12.
The reason of the lien two on the one side is because its on the property line. Code is 5' away sides. I get along fine with the neighbors and don't see an issue with it. I was going to close it up in a few years and If for some reason someone says something the only thing I'm out is some steel from the roof.

Today's neighbors may let you build it, but the ones that come later may make you tear it down.
No tool shed is ever large enough.
