I live in the city of Charlotte and plan on purchasing a site-built Tuff Shed. Does anyone know if I need to purchase a permit? If so, how much is that going to cost me...grrr.

I don't know about city building permits, but if you live in a development with a homeowners association, you usually have to run it by them first.

I would assume that since (the city feels) it's an improvement to your property, you need to get a permit (so your property tax can be increased) so any necessary inspections can be performed. I have no idea what it will cost.

it depends on size and/or whether you're pouring a concrete footing.

the website is easy to navigate from my experience;

I had a "Backyard Barnyard" storaage unit built in my backyard and I didn't need a permit. No cement foundation though. On cinder blocks.
