    Where I bought recently acquired Tool Grinder, was also an operative farm. They had a few smaller corrugated silos with shallow conical roofs; re-utilized as playhouses and guest rooms. Externally, all it took were pre-hung exterior doors and double hung windows. One taller silo used a circular stairway for a second story.

    That was justification for Mansard Roofs, France I believe. Dwellings were taxed on number of stories under roof line. One or two inside that pitch and eave is a substantial reduction.

    My shop[ basically consist of being 2 house hold goods trailers with a tent between them considered a temporary structure there are no taxes on it.
    I had the bright Idea to relocate them and add a shipping container or 2 then building a roof over that attached to them. But as soon as I connect everything together with a permanent roof and end walls this becomes a taxable structure. I've already checked due to the size I am planning for my shop the taxes on the property will raise significantly. The good thing is they only evaluate once every 5 years the last evaluation was this year. So if I hurry I may have a few years before I have to worry about coming up with the additional amount.It really doesn't matter though because I need a solid shop that I can heat in the winter and have a good dry work space other than just inside the trailers. The tent helps mostly for only keeping the direct sunlight off and some of the rain.but open ended it PITA. when the wind blows
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    In Paramount CA, the 90's there was a very large machine shop. Part of it fronted on Garfield Avenue occupying most of it's block. Other than a small residence and garage there was no taxable structure. Every machine was covered by roof, metal stock and cutting were in the shops yard, and there were only two walls.....Paramount is Los Angeles area, so weather is no problem, other than occasional strong wind.
    So how was it not taxed? Walls [corrugated] and chain link fence were attached to framing of vented roof. And each pillar was on a big rubber tired caster. Was it stable? Lol stable enough; the tires weren't inflated! The old codger owner had a fortune in property, taxed at vacant rate, being separate to residence, all grandfathered in a manufacturing zoned property. I'm surprised he didn't attempt sedition or some kind of sovereign state; but I know he was a thorn for the local tax district.

    If we didn't have such weather I'd replicate his tricky shed, and my impersonation of Galileo's finger for our local taxing body. They certainly have managed a intricate form of triple jeopardy, and the equivalent of lobbyists to enact more.

    May as well been Quicksand.
    a wee side track (yet again). Years ago, my opposition in park mtce got a small 4x4 tractor stuck so got his bigger tractor to tow & it became bogged in the mud so got a 4x4 truck which became stuck : then another bigger one became stuck. Eventually he gained help from a 4x4 backhoe which also became bogged then Council sent in its biggest equipment a CAT Grader and towed the lot out. ha ha should have used very long chains to a location where the surface would not be broken in the first place.

    Could have looked that his tracks were on the bridge foundation. Lemme see......is the arched structure reinforced, tied into what is beneath me? Seems like I'd have hammered the arch barely beyond the vertical bulwark. I'll bet the collapse would progress almost identically, and no bigger crane trolling to get me out.
    But I'm no EO, what do I know...
