It’s been a bit frustrating around our house recently. The house next door was demolished and 3 houses have been built on the block in it’s place. The house to our front had to demolish his garage and rebuild it as it wasn’t council approved. Our landlord was compelled to dig up our backyard and install a proper water retention pit – which took 8 weeks of after hours intrusion.
The end result is we won’t have fences on two sides anymore – only rendered walls because the houses have been built so close together. Ahh, medium density housing out in the suburbs.
