Re: Building 16 x16 building


Welcome from NE GA mountains. If your ultimate plans are to convert it into a house, you will probably need to include the infrastructure such as plumbing and electrical from the beginning, even if you don't use them immediately. Do you know if you are going to pour a slab or build it on footings with a wooden sub-structure? If you have specific questions, fire away. We're here.

Welcome from south of Atlanta.

Any building codes where you live.
A big difference between a shed and a house!

Re: Building 16 x16 building


yes there are building codes here, i will have to find out more about them, i do know if its not on a permanent foundation, it is considered mobile, which i think the taxes are different ,not sure.
i really enjoy these questions, its giving me a lot to think about , such as the plumbing and wiring, i would like to find out more about each, The more i read the more i want to go with small house.
Thank you all for your time
