Default Permitting/Legality of Yurt Living in MN

Hi all, my partner and I are looking into living in a yurt full time and we presently live in Central Minnesota. We have both tried to figure out if there is anything particularly illegal about living in a yurt here, and our google searches have not been the most fruitful.

So was curious if anyone else has gone through the process in MN? How did it go? Any resources that you found and are willing to share would be great!

It varies not only from county to county, but town to town. You really need to talk to the local code agency.

Thanks, that's definitely what I am finding as we are digging.

Here in NY, it is literally two different worlds going from one town to another. That's why it is hard to tell anyone what their particular outlook will be. In general, be straight up and honest with the staff and most of the time they will do whatever they can to make it work for you and stay within the codes.
