My neighborhood’s covenants prohibit sheds that can be seen from the front. So I built this shed to be lower than the 6’ height of the fence. I made the sides shadow-boxed to blend in with the fence. Since the the front of the shed is only 4’ high, I added hinges to the roof with forced-air springs to hold the roof-half open when I lift it. It works similar to a car trunk.

That’s how you get around city regulations. Nice job.
