That's funny.
In my region, you need a permit to build certain sized sheds on simple pier footings....

For my county:

Q. Is a building permit required for a small storage shed in my back yard, and do I need a permit for a permit for an addition to an existing shed?

A.
  • If the structure exceeds 120 square feet, a building permit is required.
  • A building permit is required if the addition to the existing shed increases the size of the shed to over 120 square feet.
  • If it is 120 square feet or less, a permit is not required, unless:
    • it will be used for livestock or human occupancy. - permit required
    • it is located in a designated "Chesapeake Bay Critical Area" - permit required
    • it is located in a 100 year floodplain - permit required
    • it is located in a "Baltimore County Historic District" - permit required.
  • The accessory structure (storage shed) must be in the rear yard, unless a zoning variance is obtained.
  • If the structure is over 120 square feet, but less than 1,000 square feet, four plat plans are required with the application.
  • If the structure is over 1,000 square feet, five plat plans and two construction plans are required with the application.
  • Even if the structure is less than 120 square feet and requires no building permit, it must still meet zoning and environmental protection requirements.

The last trusses I ordered were 26 feet wide with 2 feet of overhang. They fit on a building that was 26 feet wide outside to outside, and had 24" of overhang. If you need to match an existing roof go to your building supply and ask them what measurements they need for their truss maker, they should have a sheet with the measurements and where to take them from.
