And truthfully, it didn't cost them much more to get the vinyl siding & shutters that turned it into a virtually maintenance-free building. A subsequent owner, with a register electrician father ran service out to it. Sweet!

They were a super-nice family and when we got the devastating news that they were moving, we were glad they got top-dollar for their home, right before the RE crash. They deserved it as the rest of their property was equally as well designed and maintained.

Luckily, the HOA was forced to back off on many of their wacked-out, super "strict" interpretations...and so many of the subsequent "sheds" are nowhere near that nice. Hubs wants one "like that" but "bigger" (of course) we're having to build up the $$ reserves to make it happen. Where are the Man-Cave Crashers when you need 'em?
Good ole HOA's. Idont have one at my home. Its like an optional 50 bucks a year. There is a pavilion and a small filed some guy maintains. Pretty much all the cash for the year goes to him.

I have to build a shed at some poitn also. Gets old pulling out Lawnmower, snowblower and wheelbarrow to pull my truck out of the garage. My yard is sloped though so It wouldnt be an easy task to put one thier. Probably just build extension onto the back of the garage, but dont want it looking funny because theres no way to match the color of 55 year odl brick. But white siding should suffice because it is in the back of the house.
