Hi, I am starting this as a spin-off from another thread. The thread was about a houseboat owner who had: A fake sand beach, a raised pool and palm trees. I looked at the images (that is removed) and agreed that it was not the best use of a houseboat... but it was not a direct breach of the height restrictions. The problem is how to interpret: "However, you may customize it by adding tasteful extensions, as long as they are compatible with the theme and style of the house. " http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:New_Linden_Homes_2019 Maybe this is special for boats, my impression is that an occurring issue is that houseboat owners treat their water as ground, and build on it. The houseboats is placed side by side, they do not have so much public ground between them. Often only a pier. I tried to view this as a house owner: A Traditional house at the water's edge. The owner places a 4 m high fence, an add-on build, an overground pool, a pergola on top of the pool surround and a couple of palm trees. The house behind has lost their view, so they AR it because his garden items is blocking their view. Nothing is over 14 m, and the trees does not encroach. Yes or no, should this be removed? Should only the palm trees be removed since there are no Mole made palm trees, and so palms are not in theme? Are houseboats under a special obligation to keep open views for the neighbors, but not houses on ground? Should houseboats have a special note in the covenant? Like a rule for the use of water: It can not have permanent builds that raise more than 0,75 m above water? This would still allow fake sand. Should the note also say that wood piers is allowed, but not sand? Should only potted plants be allowed? My worries is that if we raise a petition to LL about tightening the covenant, and this is agreed upon by LL who updates the covenant, what stops another group from doing the same, and so on.
