Our houses were built before they made this rule so they were grandfathered in, so we had to restore them from the ground up without tearing them down. You might want to check the status concerning those issues.

So no one can build a house in that county. 20 or more acres, are you sure?

I have heard of some counties requiring atleast 1/2 acre or more but not 20. That would be one huge subdivision.
