Think of the property tax savings ....!!
Kurt.....I have a another plan, if my better half and I can agree on things.
We live in a city that you dang near have to have a permit to die. They permit EVERYTHING......except vehicles. So here's my plan.
I want to get me an enclosed utility trailer, build my wood shop inside the trailer and then park it in my backyard. I'll keep the tags up so they can't argue that it's not a trailer.
I don't plan on joining the craft show circuit.....but if I ever change my mind, my shop will be ready to go.
To put a shed in my backyard requires a $500 engineering fee to see if the plans meet hurricane wind standards. Then you need the building permit and inspection, the electrical permit and inspection, and plumbing permit and inspection. And none of these are free......
But, since I have backyard access, and no HOA, I can park a trailer in my backyard.
At first, my bride of nearly 40 years was in agreement. But now, she thinks I will be too cramped for space. So she's leaning towards building a shed.
Part of me wants the larger shed......but the majority of me wants to "get one over" on the city. (Insert evil laugh at this point!) LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
We shall see what we shall see........
