This means that your neighbor can’t build an apartment house or operate a go-kart track next door to your peaceful haven.
This means that you can build any sort of dwelling that you want, be it geodesic dome, yurt, antebellum mansion, log cabin or tudor cottage, so long as it’s permanent, and at least the size of a small two-bedroom home. Modular homes are permitted. It also means that your neighbor can’t live in a school-bus, mobile home or portable building.
This means that your neighbor can’t live in a tent affecting your property with his wind-blown trash, campfire smoke, screaming kids or raw sewage.
This means that your neighbor can’t stop the road from being maintained, or traveled, nor can he keep you from getting electricity into your parcel. He also can’t fly his 15-foot Confederate flag or post billboard-sized signs detailing his position in his last argument with you.
This means that your neighbor can’t turn his parcel into a pet cemetery or small town, nor can he sell it off in tiny squares to 400 people.
This means that your neighbor can’t use his parcel as a place to strip cars or to run a junkyard, and he can’t dump trash from his landscaping business there just because they charge to do that at the landfill. It means that as an absentee owner, he can’t use his parcel to (improperly) store metal roofing, insulation or other building materials that will blow across onto your parcel in heavy winds.
This means that your neighbor can’t get mad at you and locate a dozen hog houses on the boundary with your parcel. He needs your approval to raise rattlesnakes or timber wolves.
This means that your neighbor can’t allow raw sewage to run from his parcel onto yours. It does not mean you can’t have a composting toilet or outhouse if you please.
