I don't really know, I guess I need to know if there are other options besides demolishing the studio. Like would they accept it if we took everything out and used it for storage? In addition, what about the addition to my house, they want permits and plans for something built 28 years ago. We also don't have any money to make these changes.
That's possible - but they would be easy to get - just a permit for a storage shed or garage.
Do you know if storage sheds are allowed? If so, do you already have one?
You might be able to get a variance for the studio and have that serve as your shed. Then tear down the existing shed or sell it to a neighbor or something.
They do give variances and building permits for shed - if they are allowed within your developments covenants.
That would seem to be your best alternative for sure.
