How far does a proposed addition to my home have to be from property lines?
If the addition will be part of the home, it must be located at least 5 feet from the side property lines and at least 30 feet from the rear property line. However, if it is an accessory structure (i.e. deck or a shed), it may be located as close as 5 feet from the rear property line. Corner lots have an increased side yard setback of 15 feet for the side along the side street.
