One of our readers named Lyle has a question for those of you knowledgeable in covenants. Here it is:
I keep running into this small problem in the town I’m living in. I look at a piece of land I like then find out that the covenants for the area require a min. sq footage of at least 1,000 square feet.
I would like to build a house that is about 600-700 square feet.
Is there any good way about trying to purpose this size house without (hopefully!) being turned down? Has anyone else run into this problem and succeeded in building their small home because they could persuade the powers that be that a smaller house is more earth friendly?
Any ideas or thoughts about this would be great!
