Is there a way to reverse HOA committee’s ruling on home addition?

By From page C2 | May 14, 2016
Q: I live in an upscale housing development in Fairfield. We have a lengthy set of CC&Rs and a homeowners association that enforces them. We also have an architectural review committee that has to approve any major changes you make to your property. I want to build a small room onto the side of my house to use as an office.

I’ve submitted modified plans and drawings four different times and each time they deny my application. What can I do? What if I just start building anyway? What can they do?
