Hmmm, the wooden pier, and deck idea, is pretty cool. Since it is temporary (or at least I could claim it was), it would proabably get by the HOA rules.

That's why I built one in my ROR. I figured some day I might sell my house, and the person might want to actually use the shed .

When I built the barn I needed a 16' column to support a ridge beam that T'd to and supported a cross beam. Concerned that a 4 by 4 or 6 by 6 would be a bit wippy I built up a column of Doug fir 2 by 6s and 2 by 4s. It was glued with epoxy and clamped temporarily with 3" sheet rock screws. It could be left as is but I plained it into an octogon.
