Sounds big and maybe a little permanent!  Congrats on getting it done in time.  Enjoy the game on your new screen!

Can't wait to see this.   Grin

That is AWESOME!

How did you get that zoned - (Easier to get forgiveness than permission?)

In Nebraska they would approve it but it would add about $400/year to my property taxes

same as in PA, first they would make you tear it down, then get an architect, have it engineered, send plans to the state and the town / city / township you live in, then you'd have to go before them and explain what and why you want to do it, then they would take a vote and tell you if you can or can't.

all this would cost at least a few thousand dollars and more if they reject the plans. then you'd need a building permit, inspections and finally they would raise your taxes if they approved it.

That is just fantastic, fast eddie!  I love it.  It's a real drive-in type of deal.  Great job.  I don't have to say enjoy it because I know you already are.  The stone work around the front really sets it off.  Congrats.

i don't recall an answer to this...
someone else asked it also...
did you need any kind of permits, engineering done on the design and did you get any hassle from the area you live in if you didn't get permits ?
