House without building permit

You who have a one- or two-dwelling house may, in addition to a storage shed of no more than 15 square meters, also build a storage house without a building permit. Before you start building, you must make a report to the building board and receive a start notice.

  • You can build several attefall houses, but all attefall houses that you have built on the plot must be a maximum of 30 square meters together.
  • If you build attefall houses closer to the border than 4.5 meters, the consent of the neighbors concerned is required in order for you to build the attefall house without a building permit.
  • A permit is required according to the Environmental Code within a coastal protection area, i.e. normally 100 meters from the sea, lake and waterways. There are special rules near public roads and railway areas.
