Possible legal action?

Multiples of the same house design in the same street

3 or 4 the same in our street. You wouldn't pick it if someone didn't tell you.

Hi all,
I'm looking to build a small 3 sided enclosure in the back yard (for a wood burning stove).

I got some of the Sockitz ones.
One broke and it was replaced no questions asked.
