HOW TO BUILD SO INSPECTORS WON’T COME

You don’t need a building permit to erect a tree fort in Vancouver, however, here are some things to keep in mind:

– Build it in the back yard, not the front yard.

– Don’t put up a structure that’s more than 100 square feet in size.

– Keep it away from property lines and legal setbacks.

– Talk to your neighbours before building, to ensure the tree fort doesn’t look down on their back yards and affect a neighbour’s privacy.
