But there will be nothing of the old shed left, except the slab -.

Do they know that?......

Show them an old picture......

Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

I can probably do whatever I want. Unless someone complains, they won't have a clue I did anything. If it was going to be a shiny new stick-built shed, they might notice. But a timber frame? By the time I get it completely built, the wood will have long aged and weathered to gray.

It would be easy to say it's been there for a very long time, and if they only keep records for 10 years, how would they know it hadn't?

You could tell them it was a concrete building and you used one wall as the floor. ;D  Tim B.
This is a test, please stand by...
