Would you let your children play here? This video was shot in an Ottawa resident’s backyard on November 6, 2014. The home is in the middle of a construction zone for a 5-story condo development. Why wasn’t overhead netting or a protective wall installed to safeguard residents and their properties?
This video was shot by homeowners living next to a condo development site in Lowertown, Ottawa. This is a must-watch if a development is planned near you.
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!
That’s my driveway he’s blocking! Where’s the ticket guy when you need him…
Picture the meanest beast from the Terminator movies (80s version) and imagine it is outside your home and digging a hole into the ground underneath it. The noise is like a screaming metallic banshee.

And this one right under our home…
Ever get that feeling you want to drill something into the ground? Take a look at these videos – this took place in our own back yard!

And we can’t forget the Iron Curtain saga we experienced in this video:

These last days were some of the more stressful times we’ve ever experienced. As you can see from from the video below, we are completely surrounded by these massive steel beams and the vibrations are so intense, we are left shell-shocked. We are scared and frankly worried about our homes at this point. This has been going on for the last month or so. I know we are very close to the construction site but is it normal to feel such violent shaking?
Wow!! Demolition started on the new condos being built next to my house and the homes next door are coming down. Really cool to watch from so close, we’ve got a great view right in our backyard. It’s also a little scary though. Our journey begins…
