Why not just ask your neighbor about his.  He will probally know what he had to do.  Just my 2 cents.

The farmers around here are growing quite fond of those heavy vinyl tarp tent structures for their drive sheds.

"Temporary" I think is the operative word and no building permit.

happy coaching!

Free standing structures come under local regulations. These vary from 'you can't do that' to 'do what you want and don't tell us'.  Ask you local inspector and he may be helpful with suggestions on the best way to get what you want. A friendly discussion is much better than a fight over code interpretation.
