Hi all,

Does anyone know if it possible to get a permit to build a small (200-300 sq ft) rustic cabin in Polk county? (rustic meaning no electric or water)

Or would I be better off trying to get a permit for an outbuilding and use it as a cabin? Or...?

Anyone have any experience with this in Polk County?

You will most likely need to contact the County or the Township within Polk County. Some places will not issue a permit unless you have a required amount of land, they want to stop urban sprawl. Some places will not allow you to occupy unless you have water and septic. On a good note, some friends were able to build a small log cabin with out water or septic they do use a portable toilet just outside the cabin door.
