Shed Application

GUIDELINES FOR SHEDS

Certain types of detached structures are acceptable at Muirfield when they are designed to integrate with the design of the home by utilizing identical materials, colors and overall design characteristics. These structures must be constructed within the buildable area of the property. Structures such as privacy walls, fences, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, gazebos, pergolas, trellises, decks and patios must be consistent with the design of the main structure. They should be screened with landscaping to guarantee privacy. Metal storage sheds and other pre-fabricated outbuildings are prohibited.

Before making changes or additions to the exterior of your home, written approval must be obtained from the Muirfield Design Control Committee. This guide sheet will assist you in preparing to submit an application to the Muirfield Design Control Committee. These guidelines are in accordance with the Muirfield Design Standards.
