They said it reflected poorly on the neighborhood, devalued their property.  She explained they built the shed decades before they conceived of the neighborhood. They didn’t care they wanted it gone. Grandma prepared for battle.

They suggested a teardown, replaced with a new big box store shed. Grandma countered that those sheds were eyesores, uglier than her shed would ever be. She would not lose her family heirloom.

The city engineer confirmed the shed’s construction was sound and would last another hundred years.

Grandma played her ace, protecting it forever when she registered the shed with the Lancaster Historical Society.
