Interesting. Around here, if you build it stationary, as is on posts, they
add it to your property tax values and it has to have a building permit. If
it is on skids, it is not subject to inspections or taxes. Mine is on 4 x 6
skids, then with a couple trailer tie down straps. I use truss to wall
connector clips to make sure the skids do not pull loose from the floor when
it is moved by dragging it with a chain.
That's not unique, but I'm sure not universal, either. Some time back a
neighbor built a pole barn in his yard. He set it on 6" of gravel and used PT
two-bys, raised off the ground, for flooring. As long as it was sitting on
the ground, no inspections and no taxes.
Building codes vary from community to community. I can't see me wanting
to move my shed anytime, ever, but if I really had to, I could unbolt it
from the posts, jack it up, put it on dollies and roll it anywhere. We
did that once with a cottage on an island that was a lot bigger than my
