I'm looking for a place on the internet that publishes the building codes for the Louisville Metro area. I am trying to verify what a builder told me recently. He told me that if someone were to put up a utility shed in their back yard that they have to come in from the back property line 30 feet and then the side of the shed has to be in line with the side of the house. Can anyone verify this for me or at least point me in the right direction on the internet to verify this for me. I've tried calling the city to get answers and no one ever returns my calls. I do not have a huge back yard and do not want a shed sitting in the center of it.

LouisvilleKy.gov - Development Permits - Building


I keep saying this, but the city's website is superb and nearly comprehensive. They even have applications now where you can look up every crime in your area, from larceny, to auto theft, to homicide. If the above link is not what you want, the answer will be somwhere on LouisvilleKy.gov - www.louisvilleky.gov - Louisville Metro Government Official Website - Louisville, Kentucky (USA)

Default building codes in ky

I work in lexington but I am sure it is probably the same for louisville. Ky adopted the 2006 IBC with 76 pages of amendments. There is no free version of the code online. You can download the amendments free from aia.org but the IBC has to be purchased at iccsafe.org. I have found no free versions of the 2006 IBC on any web site. However, it sounds to me like you are being told about a zoning ordinance since the building code doesnt care how close you place a structure to the property line, only that if it is close enough it will require a rating.

fstokley gave some excellent advice. Only to add to what he shared, please note that Louisville, as with most other KY jurisdictions, requires your inquiry to be property specific. From property taxes, to zoning, to subdivision regulations, even deed restrictions, any question about your property must be specific. What your neighbor can do, does not necessarily mean you can do it.

Sorry for the delayed thank-you. I forgot how to get back to this forum until I recently stumbled across it again.

Thanks!

Exclamation Neighborhood restrictions?

There may also be specific neighborhood restrictions that further require additional limitations on your future shed. Examples include allowing only certain siding on the shed, height, roof type, color of the shed, etc. The neighborhood association (if there is one) will have a copy of the restrictions.
