You know, if I had a quarter for every “violation” this city said I committed in regards to building on my property, I’d be a rich man. However it’s not that the city has representatives sweeping through every town, looking for some terrible homeowner that’s building a shed separate from having approval from urban planning! Sadly, it’s because I live in a homeowner’s association – I get chewed out by my neighbors for anything! If my neighbors ratted me out over the grass and a few yard signs, just imagine how they reacted when I had a shed delivered to my home! I’d wanted a small, six foot by six foot space in my backyard to store a bunch of stuff from the garage because I’m having a ductless mini-split plan installed for cooling and heating the garage. The shed wasn’t in the ground, so I wasn’t making changes to my backyard – not that my neighbors could tell thanks to my privacy fencing! Besides, the shed was just a diversion, anyway. I knew that if my neighbors saw that I was installing a ductless mini-split plan for my garage space, they’d flip their lids. Thankfully the outside piece of the plan is truly tight, so it fits nicely between the fence and the outer wall of the garage. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Plus, the ductless mini-split is so quiet that my neighbors think it’s just my home’s central heating or A/C. I’ll be the only one on the block with a cool, comfortable garage where I can do whatever I want!
