   (d)   Any open structure, such as a porch, canopy, balcony, platform, deck, covered patio or other architectural projections, shall be considered part of the building to which it is attached and shall not be located closer to the lot line than the setback line.
   (e)   In any location where the road right-of-way line is not established, it shall be assumed that the right-of-way is sixty feet (60') in width and the front yard and front setback shall be measured from a line which is thirty feet (30') from the centerline of the road.
