Insane in the membrane?


So this week the developer next door, you know the one who had the Rock Thrower hit our front window and air conditioner? They came back and dug up the rocks they had thrown down and decided it was OK to rip out the side of our foundation membrane without asking us first. When queried about how they were allowed to do it they simply said “don’t worry we will fix it later this fall.” This really is the Wild West.

Our Fence – Not protecting us. It needs protection

You can see here and here that our fence was in top shape back in fall/winter 2013. But throughout the construction it’s been getting worse and worse. We really liked the fence as it kept our garden sheltered. You can also notice in this picture that the right side of the house appears to be sinking. Damage to other parts of the house appear to be supporting this theory as well. Will this ever get fixed? Stay tuned.0O9A3428_CC


Sticks and stones will break your house bones

So they filled the side area of the construction site. It was done Rambo-style with some contraption slinging thousands of small rocks directly adjacent to our house. Some of the rocks hit our front window and some fell into our air conditioning unit.  Not pleased.

I think they realized that damage to our house was occurring because they let themselves in to our front yard and put up boards in an attempt to block the rocks. These are the things you deal with living next to a construction site!
