I hope you do not have deal with an HOA.I have a friend with a BUD, and there are many houses around here with them as well. It would be weird to walk up to their door, knock and ask "Hey, can I buy that dish in your back yard?" XD
The HoJo dish has an actuator on it. I'll have to ask if I can get photos (or just be very quiet when taking the photos)
What he says doesn't mean squat. What is written on paper has some meaning. For your own protection don't let him change his mind after he sees your dish, put it in writing.
