If you need help to speed things up, I bet your neighbors will be glad to help.

If you want to buy a house and want to do with your proerty whatever you've dreamed of, do not buy in a developed area. I think you have learned your lesson.

When buying a house to raise your family I assumed that if I own the property I can do as I please to the property but in cape coral this isn't the case. I purchased a 4 bed 2 bath with screened pool and jacuzzi and a small lake out back with a little over a half acre. I am an organic gardener and wanted to simply put a shed on my back lot for my gardening supplies. Cape coral won't let it happen becasue the shed won't be directly behind the house. SO I had to put the shed behind my pool cage obstructing the lake view. I also wanted my 3 boy to raise some hens for organic eggs and they won't allow that either. The restrictions are rediculous. I will soon be selling and getting out of this city as soon as I can put my house on the market. AGAIN If you want to buy a house and want to do with your proerty whatever you've dreamed of DO NOT buy in Cape Coral .

We purchased a home in CC and we completely enclosed the one side yard with a fence. It is a big rectangle area with two wide gates. the gates are one front side of the house and one back yard side and the fence connects to the house.. No one can see in this big rectangle area. I could drive a car in it if I wanted to.

I am thinking about putting two sheds up against the house in this area to store gardening equipment.. they are small type sheds , @ 3Ft wide to 6ft long and will be high enough for rakes , shovels , etc..also putting in a concrete pad for them to sit on.. graded slightly from the house.

I love this enclosed area.. we store a motorcycle trailer in there and it is out of view completely. It frees up the garage space . I will make sure it is not a catch all because I hate accumulation but sometimes we need to put things somewhere because of the ordinances .

If we get a small boat it is going in there to for aesthetic reasons.. I hate to see boats, trailers even in the back yard.. like everything out of sight.
