Accessory Structures
  • Accessory structures may include detached garage, detached carport, patio cover, deck, woodshed, utility building, or gazebo.
    • One story accessory structures such as tool and storage sheds, playhouses, and similar uses do not require a permit provided that the floor area does not exceed 200 square feet and is less than 12 feet in height.  
    • If the accessory structure is used for tools, storage, a play house, greenhouse, hothouse or similar use, a permit is not required.
    • Please see the Battle Ground Municipal Code, section 17.135.015 for more information or our Accessory Structure Handout for easy reference.
  • The Residential Submittal Requirements Checklist (2ndpage of building application) provides an itemized checklist of documents required for review at the time of submittal. 
    • Additional forms are provided in the building permit application packet which are not required for small projects. For example: 
  • Documents must be filled out and uploaded to the portal at the time of application.
    • Currently we require one physical copy of full-size (24"x36"), to-scale architectural plans. 
    • One physical copy each of all other documents.
