A million thanks for all of your help. It is very much appreciated. Just
an update on my project.
I called about whether or not I need a permit to build an 8 x 8' shed in an
area of my back yard. I was told no, but that someone would have to come
out to inspect the setbacks. A nice guy came out, and this size shed is ou
t of the question as I have to be 5 feet away from my neighbor's fence. My
back yard is curved, so if the inspector would have gone around the corner
, he would have seen that my neighbor's shed is against my property line, a
nd in fact, the overhang of his shed is on my property. I have known this,
but it does not bother me. The inspector said this has something to with
the fire trucks. I also have a large shed, built before I bought this home
, and it is only 3-1/2 feet from this neighbor's fence. Sure hope I don't h
ave to move it some day. What a headache.
My plan is to hire a carpenter and build a 6 x 7’ shed. I just wan
t it to store an extra lawnmower so I don't have to wheel it from the front
yard to the back yard every time I mow. It just makes life easier for me.
It will also be used to store patio cushions, etc. during the winter.
I have not decided what to do with the old conduit/electical from the hot t
ub that was removed, but got great ideas from all of you.
I have not talked to the guy who will build this small shed for me yet, but
does a 7’ pointed roof sound around right? I want to be able to s
tand up in it, and yet
make the shed looked balanced.
