    In situations like this, you should consult an attorney and
    you are urged to do so. Having said that: Your
    interpretation appears reasonable subject to interpretation of
    the word "complete." Who's interpretation of "complete"?
    What's "complete" to you might not be "complete" to the CC&R
    police OR to the courts. Again, you are urged to consult an
    attorney -- and particularly so if you face any potential
    liability for any project. Furthermore, courts can AND will
    invalidate any CC&R that violates public policy, and policy
    includes local, state & federal building laws and/or codes.
