Installing a gazebo or freestanding porch provides a great way to enjoy the outdoors without actually roughing it in Jay County, Indiana. But putting up a gazebo or porch involves more than just hiring someone to nail a few pieces of wood together. Consider these issues first:
- Make sure the gazebo or porch conforms to zoning ordinances. Consult your local municipality about restrictions concerning gazebos or porches, and whether a permit is needed to build one.
- Check the lot survey to make sure that the gazebo or porch isn't infringing on a neighbor's property.
- If you're part of a homeowner's association, see if it has any restrictions regarding gazebo or porch.
