So I'm looking to have an extra building built in my back yard, and the county code phagit is telling me that after years of living here, that the front of my house is actually the side and the side is the front. Claims that although my mailbox, electrical meter and water meter are in my FRONT YARD, that it is actually my side because the front, sides and rear of the house depends on the outer dimensions of the house. And that because my house is oddly shaped, technically my front is my side. Code states that the secondary building/garage must not be able to be seen from the "front". The way my house is built next to my neighbor, it is impossible to put a building of any size in my "back"(side) yard according to the code phagit's definition. I live in georgia. Does anyone know what's up with these codes and if what this nerd is saying is true? Or is he trying to be a prick because I gave him shit a couple years back about a deck I was building at the time?
