so last year I put up a small shed (6'x6') on my property in the hamlet of huntington.
No permit is required for sheds under 100 sq ft as confirmed with the bldg dept. I did not know that the shed cannot be located between any street line (property line) and the existing or proposed setback line of the main building on the lot. My shed is in a side yard and protrudes about 3' in front of my house, . I am in process of getting COs for a detached deck amongst other things because we are selling. Since the deck is detached the town wants a new survey of the property (more money down the drain), which will then show the shed as being partially in front of the house. My property setback is over 125'. I don't want to tear down the shed, can I get some sort of variance to allow the shed? How much does something like that cost? Is it going to be a PITA and just easier to remove the shed ?
What are my options?
