Outbuilding project.


Ok, so my neighborhood has a couple of restrictions on outbuildings.

They can either match the material of the home or be located where they can't be seen from the street. I don't want to go to the trouble or expense of matching the brick and locating it in the rear where it can't be seen won't work either.

So I came up with a plan and actually got it approved. I am going to hide it behind a fence.

So what I am wanting to do it building it my side yard where I am going to build an 8' tall fence. The plan is to make the back of the building look like the rest of the fence which will just be a simple stockade style with the fence planks attached to the building instead of posts/rails.

I just need to know what type of waterproofing I need to do behind the fence boards?

Thanks.

Re: Outbuilding project.


Build your building first, make sure it is flashed and painted well to prevent water infiltration. Then you can apply your "fencing" to the siding. You don't want to use DE fencing as siding, if that answered your question.

Re: Outbuilding project.


I'm thinking a plywood back wall, tar paper and then the fence boards.

Thanks. What is DE fencing?

What about housewrap or Zip panels instead of tar paper?

Re: Outbuilding project.


DE is dog ear fencing.

Who approved this, HOA, building dept, or both ?

The reason I ask is that about 25 years ago, a friend of mine went round and round with his HOA to get a shed approved. Came up with the tall fence “solution”. My comment was good luck getting a permit.

Neither he nor the HOA knew that it would take a zoning variance to build the overheight fence.
