    Sec. 35.1-24. Accessory Buildings and Uses.


    Sec. 35.1-24. Accessory buildings and uses.
    (a) Accessory building with similar materials of main building. If any accessory building is constructed with like or similar materials as the main building, it shall comply in all respects to the requirements of this ordinance applicable to the main building. All other accessory buildings shall comply to the requirements for such buildings in the schedule of regulations.
    (b) Dwellings in accessory buildings. Any accessory building on the same lot with a main residence building shall not be used for residential purposes except for guests or for domestic employees (who are employed on the premises) by the owners or tenants of the main building, and neither shall such a building contain a kitchen or kitchen facilities.
    (c) Accessory use. Accessory buildings shall be located in rear yards only and may occupy not more than thirty per cent (30%) of the required rear yard. On through lots, accessory buildings shall be prohibited in all yards—front, side and rear. On interior lots, accessory buildings may be erected on the lot line; provided, the fire resistive requirements of the building code are complied with. On corner lots, accessory buildings shall be located as far as possible from the side street line but not nearer to such street line than the setback line required in the district, and where such corner lot requires a side yard abutting the side street, the accessory building shall be located a distance from the rear lot line equal to the required side yard dimension for the abutting lot to the rear of the main building on the corner lot. (Ord. No. O-78-352, 12-12-78; Ord. No. O-06-091, 7-11-06)
