Got to have a permit to tear the shed down.
The good news is that the inspector's word wasn't final. I called him this morning and learned that what I need is a single building permit (which would cover work on the entire building, including replacing the bad studs, all the outer sheathing, and the re-roofing) instead of one roof and one siding permit.
So now I get to try getting the permit...and hopefully people will leave me (and that damn shed) the hell alone.
