I'm sure it will all work out for you. Thanks for your patience to my Follow-ups. You see how I can ramble. But in this particular case, I thought that sharing just 3 'things' that happened to me, you'd get the jist of how I handled it and how it all ended up.
Just for grins, I must have asked 30 people if I should get the permit for the shed. NOT ONE said I should, including a couple of my neighbors. I'm sure I would have screws myself. As you see, so far, the chance I took has been to my advantage. This November, it will be 3 years since the shed moved in. (How we did that is a story worth hearing over a few beers! It was UNBELIEVABLE!)
