Can I build an apartment in my barn?
The majority of the county is zoned for single-family residential use, meaning that only one residence is allowed per tract of land. A residential area built in a barn will be considered the house and must meet the same minimum requirements as a house. No other residential structures will be allowed on the same property except as provided for in the regulations. An accessory dwelling may be constructed as defined and outlined in the zoning regulations. Duplexes and multiple-family dwellings are only allowed in the planned development district, which would require rezoning on most properties in the county.
