how cute.
but so idiotically false - just so you sheep people have something to talk about.

Any inspector will detect those structures as horse shelters.
Are you really implying if I build a handle to my house it suddenly ceased to be a house but became, for example a giant bench? No. And so it works the other way around. Build your shelter in waht form you desire - but tat the moment someone can detect it is build for other purposes, it becames a thing subordinated to those purposes.

Conclusion - story is fake. Tables are simply tourist attraction.

Since when do you need a permit to build on your own property?
I wouldn't even ask, I would just do it.
#67 to #66 - Funnymick (02/05/2013) [-]
Zoning laws, some things can't be built in certain areas. While it proves to be stupid most of the time, it prevents sex shops from being built next to pre-schools lol.

I'm not talking about inner city living, I'm talking about rural areas where people have large plots of land. If I lived in the country, **** all what the local government says, I'm going to build what I want on my land.
#70 to #68 - Funnymick (02/05/2013) [-]
There are still zoning laws, chances are you'll get away with it. Just hope none of your neighbors are snitches. Not all areas have strict zoning either.
User avatar #85 to #70 - budunovukai (02/05/2013) [-]
Depending on the rural area, they might be living in an area that is protected by city ordinances in historically relevant areas that stop people from parking a junk yard on the Battle of Gettysburg (I'm exaggerating but you get the point). A lot of areas are also subject to homeowner's associations that keep the area aesthetically pleasing and conform to standards set by a local governing body. If you want to avoid it, you have to go to the meetings. Otherwise you end up like this stupid bastard that probably ended up having to take it down or be foreclosed.

Funnyjunk: Hurray!

This makes no sense:
"A table is a form of furniture with a flat and satisfactory horizontal upper surface used to support objects of interest, for storage, show, and/or manipulation."

"Furniture is the mass noun for the movable objects intended to support various human activities such as seating and sleeping."

- Wikipedia article on both Table and Furniture

User avatar #44 - auraguardian (02/05/2013) [-]
there was a guy who was denied planning permission for a house, but he was granted for a stable, so he built a house, bought a horse and put it in the living room.

when the council got on his case about it he said that he had built the horse a stable.

Thats just some tourist attraction out in the midwest. The horses just happened to be standing their during the photo. The story of the denied shelter building thing is a lie. Snopes it.
#32 to #19 - anonymous (02/05/2013) [-]
Midwest meaning Eastern Germany? To whom is that the midwest?

How can someone seriously believe that a "farm owner was denied a council permit to build a horse shelter"

It's not an issue with government itself, but oftentimes, local and regional politicians can be complete dicks.
User avatar #14 to #13 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
That´s actually possible. At least in Germany, my Uncle wanted to built a new Barn, but wasn´t allowed to. Of couse, you can built a Barn, everytime, but you have to ask for Permitement and it happens that you aren´t allowed to built it, where you want it, out of the most idiotic reasons...
User avatar #33 to #14 - neokun (02/05/2013) [-]
Why would you need permission to build on your own land.
User avatar #49 to #33 - rieskimo (02/05/2013) [-]
Because you need to have any standing structures inspected to make sure that it meets building and zoning codes. This changes from country to country, state to state(province to province?), and town to town but there are requirements even if it is on your own land. Most of these codes were originally put into place to preven people from building questionable structures that could damage neighbors but most codes and zoning laws now are to help local government get extra taxes from their townspeople or to be a hassle for projects(example: George Lucas wanted to build what would essentially be a movie studio on his large plot of land, but the local rich people didn't approve it because it could be an eyesore so instead he donated the land towards low-income housing as a nice rich-guy " **** you" to other rich people who don't like poor people).

yes.
I cannot show you link, but it is true. Google and see. It was a pretty amazing article to read.

why if he_ owns_the farm\land dose he need a permit?
User avatar #78 to #26 - odonnell (02/05/2013) [-]
Because the officials **** people over.
Even though you've paid for the land, you own the land, you have the deed of the land, you still need to get planning permission to make sure the land is "Safe" to build on, but its little to do with safety and more to do with them getting that little extra money from you.
User avatar #28 to #26 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
I really don´t have an idea. Germany has way, way to many laws/rules. For example, when we built a new house, 3 years ago, we had to renew our whole Plans for the house, cause the End of the Roof would have longed 5 cm to far over the Street. We weren´t allowed to built it that way...-.- It´s really, really annoying, here
#24 to #14 - harleyzone (02/05/2013) [-]
did he have excessive animals that would necessitate an extra barn?
User avatar #25 to #24 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
He didn´t own them he had a huge complex of builidings, some for horses, some for cows and other Stuff, but mainly for horses and he sheltered many horses for other People, thus wanted to built the barn to shelter more horses. But the other Animal-holding Barns were right in the middle of the complex, with riding-grounds and tournament-grounds around, the new Barn would have been right outside the complex, so he got told that the sounds would annoy the neighbours...
#34 to #25 - anonymous (02/05/2013) [-]
so you guys believe that if you own the land you can do anything with it? so young and naive..
User avatar #36 to #34 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
That is, how it should be.
#38 to #36 - anonymous (02/05/2013) [-]
well no.. you want your neighbour to build a ******* nuclear plant right next to your house?
User avatar #39 to #38 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
I can´t do anything against it.
Just one Example, my Grandparents installed solar Panels on their Roof. Two years latter, a Tower that was part of a governmental Powerplant or something was built next to their house. Took away the Sun from my Grandparents house for 80% of the Day.
#40 to #39 - anonymous (02/05/2013) [-]
i don't know the laws in Germany but in my country you can sue the government for stepping over your rights. probably they won't take down the tower but at least they should give compensation if you were affected negatively.
User avatar #41 to #40 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
My Grandparents did so, but they didn´t get anything. As I said, german Laws are pretty ******* idiotic. We are a way to "correct" and "lawful" country, sadly....
#42 to #41 - anonymous (02/05/2013) [-]
then they can appeal to the EU.. but I don't think it would be worth it haha
User avatar #43 to #42 - ljxjlos (02/05/2013) [-]
Well, sadly our Country is very important in the World. I sometimes wish, the world would look more at the Quality and fun of life then on laws and safety...
