Looking at the zoning rules, this virtually assures me that I will need to bracket the tower to the house.

And that's the major problem you will face when dealing with most Building And Planning departments, the misunderstanding of how towers are constructed and what standards are used. They have no clue that a "free standing" crank-up doesn't require being bracketed to the house. Thankfully I didn't have to deal with that issue but I did have other hurdles to overcome myself, like the B & P engineer trying to tell me the tower had to meet 1/2" icing requirements, proving the TX-472 meets the 2009 International Building Code, etc, etc, etc. Smiley

John,

Thanks - my sentiments exactly.  I am thinking about what kind of "cute ornamental trellace" Wink I can attach it with so that it meets the letter of the code.  I would hate to have to go for a variance.  Will keep you posted - but for now I need to get back to work on designing a shelter (our house) so I can the rain off the station operator and equipment Grin
