Building inspector says I have to remove my heat pump

I am having so many issues with my wine facility. First, I got all the licensing and paperwork to have a building set up on my farm. I then got an electrician, HVAC technician and a building inspector. I thought everything was all good to go. Now, I am getting into it with my building inspector. He is now saying everything is not up to code. He is upset I don’t have a bathroom and more protection around my building. Basically this guy wants me to shut down my winery until he is happy. I can’t really stop wine production though. We are in the middle of the season. I have wine fermenting, grapes already in boxes and all the materials are in the winery. I also have the electric on and I am paying for it. I also just had the HVAC contractor into my building to set up my new heat pump system. The heat pump is hooked up and working at full speed. The building inspector is telling me I need to take everything out of the building. No wine, boxes or other materials. I also need to turn off the electric and even worse, rip off the HVAC equipment. Yup, the building inspector literally wants me to pull off the heat pump system. I would have to call the HVAC technician in back to do it. I don’t think I could do a successful HVAC removal. I am not going to though. It would cost a ton and potential ruin my heating and cooling system. I am willing to comply with whatever changes he has, just not the HVAC one.
