It was to be a cover over a small fire pit. it is made our of 10" pine tree posts with beams running between them all. It all checks out with county codes, fire codes, etc.
they base there decissions off county laws, who use the IBC
no I did not get approval to build a structure. the president at the time, said i didnt need one, because nothing states that you need approval for anything except house color, and building a fence or a building. My structure is basically a pergula shade structure as it stands. The one other thing they keep bringing up, is that it doesnt have a continuous foundation. again.....it isnt a building. I feel 99% that it is discriminatory.
My neighbor, who had been the hoa president for three years, and who i originally asked about building it, doesnt agree with their actions at all. he went around the whole development, and found 57 other violations, and those home owners havent recieved any notices.
