I think I pay quite enough taxes and township/county fees as it is, regardless ... this type of project would not raise my taxes - and technically, so far - it does not require a permit you
If you don't want an experienced inspector checking you work then don't do the project. Get the permit or don't do the project, stop trying to skirt the law you just it up for everyone else.
I drink with the inspector. He's a friend (and will probably be also helping with the construction!). The township supervisor, he's a friend too. If I wanted a permit or variance for ANYTHING I can get it ... what's the point. I don't pull favors. I would never do
-up work or inferior design in anything I do - and I always try to "somewhat" stay within the bounds of the zoning ordinances. I am on here for advice from someone who has possibly done a similar project, not to be ridiculed by some little
like you. Thanks for nothing!
