I don’t know where you live but in the current IRC, (International Residential Code) building code, a structure on piers, (deck or building) must be fixed to the piers with hurricane anchors, that is not conducive to or considered a free moving structure. I live on Cape Cod Ma., the local abutment variance for structures over 100sqft is a minimum of 10 feet off the property line, (considered a fire lane). 100 sqft and under, if on sleds can be within 10 feet of PL, (can be pushed/pulled aside by FD). The pic shown appears to have the edge of the deck against the chain link fence.

You’re asking for trouble with your sheathing idea too, drafts insect invasion.

Each town has it’s own variances that often supersede the state code for various reasons, rarely if ever below.

Stupid question, I really hate to ask, “You pulled a permit yeah”?

-- I meant to do that!
