I have one question.

Did you get a permit for your root cellar? I don't want to if I don't have to but we do eventually want insurance on our farm and I'm worried it may affect it or the value of our property. Damn the man.

You don't need one here for structures less than 100 sq ft.  May want to check there.

In California, probably.  In the South, permits are for habitable spaces, and anything other than heated, habitable floor space intended for human occupation generally doesn't require permits.

In Ohio there are broad exemptions for farm buildings.

I live in B.C. Canada and man, they want a permit for everything. I think America is a lot more lax. You need a permit for every renovation, every garage, every every every thing. BUT I'm not sure about the size, they may not require it on something less than 10'10, if so than it's going to be 9'11x9'11, better believe.

Depends on where you live.  Where I am, it's the same as there.  Only buildings under 100 sq ft are exempt.
