I live in a fairly large subdivision 30+ homes. I have placed a tasteful storage building on my property that some of my neighbors seem to disapprove of. I received a letter from "them" today stating that it is not within the covenants of the property deed. My neighborhood does not have a HOA. Most homes in my neighborhood are not in compliance with these covenants as well. What rights do I have when most homes are in non compliance in some way or another.

Depends on the specifics of the covenants to which you have referred and the laws of your unidentified state (it is noteworthy that your post does not state that you disagree with your neighbors' conclusion). Generally, if covenants exist and are binding on each homeowner for the benefit of each other homeowner in the subdivision, the lack of an HOA is irrelevant.
