The new neighbors have done nothing to "endear" themselves with the rest of us. As you can see from this picture, a shit load of wood was delivered this morning and they are working diligently to get this fortress fence erected. Access for thegrandson will now be cut off, for him to visit his friend "across the creek" behind us.
When I moved into my house many moons ago, there was a fortress fence all around the property and one of the first things we did was tear the ugly thing down. I don't want to feel like I am caged in, in my own home. I would have had much less of a problem, had they chosen a chain link fence - but no, I think this is to piss me off.
The building inspector has already been to their house (just a short while ago) to check that it complies with zoning ordinances, and they were called on the fact that they did NOT have a building permit. At first I was told the fence had to be five feet off the property line - but now they have changed that to one foot. I was head of the zoning board for awhile, I will have to go to the basement and see if I can find the rulings. By the time that is done...they will have the fukking thing up!
Now, I'm trying to figure how much it would take to have a small bridge built across the creek, so thegrandson and his friends can play. It never ends.
My blood pressure has to be through the roof by this time, so I am cutting this short (ha).
