Making friends with my HOA

Yesterday I spent several hours re-reading through my HOA documents in an attempt to better familiarize myself with all the  different aspects of the organization.  I have filed the paperwork needed for my landscaping, patio, and rear steps as well as for future landscaping.  Hopefully the board will approve my plans.  I still feel annoyed that the houses that have fans/ac units in their front windows need to move them; and if for some reason a neighbor complains that my barbacue is annoying them I'm going to tell them where to go.  But since I live in a community with an HOA, I need to make the best of it.

  1. If a neighbor were to try to claim your BBQ smells were obnoxious they would get laughed right out of the HOA meeting. Trust me, I've been to those meetings. There's always someone who wants to bring up 2,341 'issues' and they all get swatted down. Somewhere, there is probably a legal definition of what an obnoxious odor is. I'm sure cookouts do not fall within the definition.
