It was a lot of work, but it was worth it. I wrote everything on the premise that if it can't be seen from the street, it's legal!

It's amazing the BS you can eliminate when you control the eraser.
I don't have an HOA. I own a house where every other house is a rental.

Came home from a day of my landscaping job to find that the code enforcement had came BACK today! Left a notice. My tagged, insured ford ranger has been deemed an "eyesore". I'm gonna snap a pic so yall can see I'm not at all doing anything to deserve this.
I'm going to the city commission meeting next thurs and they will NOT enjoy my attending, that I can promise.

A bank bought the two houses across the street. THey're worth MAYBE 70 grand each. They're listed for 130k and 135k. The realtor is almost CERTAINLY my code enforcement narc. I'm listing my house for sale next week. Gonna ask 135k. I have maybe 80k in it.
May be living in a bus sooner than I'd planned.

ALL THIS is why I own a bus.

After a serious and frank discussion with the city manager, I've managed to get the code guy off my back. Been getting the house ready to paint and put on the market.
I've been WORKING a whole lot which is a nice change of pace.
My brother is living with us so now I have real help with the bus.
Gona post some update pics after the weekend.

When I called the city manager, I played the "poor redneck boy" card.
I went on about "how can they tell me I can't have my truck, in America, on an election year?"

I'd love to get you, Christopher, and as many other members over for a nice meetup/bbq/whatever.
ANY time you wanna come hang out, we'd love to have you.
I'm trying to order the steel I need and still trying to get my stepdad to get me a price for the steel for another member.
I love having all this work coming in again, but I have a lot less free time and energy.
Some bad news came last week- my good friend who I was going to have do a lot of welding and fabrication work for my bus was injured in a M/C accident. No helmet. Hoping he has a speedy and full recovery. Doing ok so far from what I've heard but I haven't been able to get over and see him.

Haha!! I love it! That's a well played patriotism card, I'd say ;)

It's a shame that the meddlers brought you to a situation where you had to take time out of your day to sort things out with the officials, just so you could go back to minding your own business with your own property..
