Wow. The upside is you still have your WFO. So congrats. My experience has always been that HOAs can be backed down pretty easily once lawyers get involved. Covenants rarely are well drafted enough for them to enforce. And you can typically find instances where they have allowed other covenant violations to exist or go unchecked- the " nuclear" option if you will. For others who find themselves in this situation, don't buckle so quickly. Remember that HOAs are made up if homeowners and elected members change often. What the board may object to today could be fine a year later....HOAs rarely require homeowners to tear things down if there is a question of interpretation.

I have two friends who took the legal route against their HOAs and lost. One had his roof replaced by insurance and chose a colored shingle (brown hue). HOA specifies black unless prior approval is written. He ended up with $14k of legal fees and had to pay to have the shingles moved back.

The second wanted a permanent basketball standard, and put one in his front without permission. He assumed that because there were others with that he should be good. He lost (others were grandfathered), had to remove standard and pay the HOA legal costs which were close to $6k. I personally don't know anyone who has won that fight.

For me it was simply less expensive to go the route of compromise. All sides gave some ground, nobody spent money (except me moving the oven).

I would move to a place where less interference is to be had. We may not have the 'freedom' with carrying weapons but we can erect a basketball hoop and chose the colour of our roof in this wide brown land without harassment.

Swings and roundabouts. Just sayin'.

I am not as far along as you in the build but am also in the process of having to move the Oven... Unfortunately mine is so huge I don't think it is going to happen. I think I Might have to tear down and rebuild because it weighs too much but... it is what it is. Your build is beautiful though!

Hi Steve

HOA are not USA specific and anything to do with our government system. They are associations established and run by people within a development/Subdivision of homes. The rules are known by the potential buyers prior to moving in and dictate everything form roof colors to RV parking. Most of us here in the US prefer not to live in HOA developments, they can be mini Socialist Camps full of nut jobs. I, like you prefer the freedom of the great outdoors where "within reason" I can do what i want, but say "have-at-it" to people who choose HOA living.

Hodgey: I have to say that our HOA is awesome....They know their place and their responsibilities. Their job is mostly just to take care of the common areas...that's all.

I actually took my oven apart brick by brick. I labeled each with a concourse number and position number. The reassembly only took one day. It was not as bad of a project as I thought it would be. I think you'll find it will work out.
