All zoning concerns and/or
local permits are the responsibility of the buyer.
Rules and regulations vary from one location to another; so while
we will be happy to discuss any concerns you have, we cannot be expected
to give permit, zoning, or legal advice.
We will be happy to discuss your options with you, but ultimately,
the final outcome is responsibly of the buyer.
The preparation of the site is very important to the appearance and
longevity of your new structure. Whenever
possible the site should be flat, level, and well drained.
It should not be placed directly against other structures or
retaining walls. Hunterdon
Mill can't provide site preparation services, but we can advise and
otherwise assist you.
We recommend that most structures in excess of
100 square feet (footprint) be placed on a gravel pad.
Solid concrete is acceptable, but in many cases, it is not required
for satisfactory results. Smaller
structures can be “shimmed” to level or square with blocks of wood,
stone, or concrete, allowing them to be placed directly on the ground.
We do not recommend this for larger structures because it leads to
“racking” and leveling problems.
It is important that we can physically deliver the structure to the
site. We need room to
maneuver the truck/trailer as well as clearance from overhead branches and
wires. Steep hills, uneven
grades, and tight clearance at the site often cause complications.
Please take note of these factors and bring them to our attention
so that we can provide the best service possible and avoid unnecessary
charges and complications.
If the structure is to
be located at a site that is not accessible for any reason, there are
available such as “built on site” or delivery in
“kit” form. Feel free to
ask for more details. We will
be happy to assist you in determining which mode of delivery will work
best for your situation.
Please be aware that
while we are very careful when delivering your structure, problems will
sometimes occur. Our truck is
relatively small, but a combination of soft ground and/or heavy load will
sometimes cause lawn damage. Tree
branches will sometimes be broken or scrape the surface of the structure.
We cannot be responsible this damage.
We recommend discussing the particulars of your delivery with us so
that these problems can be minimized or even eliminated.
