Re: “Disharmony on Prospect Street: A Dispute Between Neighbors Strikes a Sour Note

Yes, because the decibel range of his table saw cutting "large wood" against small should be the deciding factor. Really? I get the point as I have a shop and know the difference, but still, if it's during the day and within normal working hours, so what? If he was bringing minions over the border and storing them in his shed, then we would have a serious problem! haha. But that's not the case. I make guitars out of my carriage barn that I restored but my neighbors are legit, REAL PEOPLE. Closed quarters residential area just the same. I communicate with them all the time. Running to the board is just being a legalized bully. Still though, shouldn't be an issue as most people are working as well during normal business hours or at least have hobbies. Sitting on your sun porch being less than a credible part of society doesn't by any mean's give you extra reason or right to harass your neighbor because you couldn't hear your own fart, correctly. You have a man creating wooden art that is functional to create music of all sorts from his own residence to support his family. Meanwhile, the neighbor, obviously a zealous shrew most likely with a push over husband like Mr.Magoo with nothing better to do but Boo Hoo still has rights enough to cut this family down for sake of noise?!!!! They're obviously not very smart people to begin with if that's what they were looking for. To buy a house in an open residential community by a college, for 3/4 of a millions dollars, for peace and quiet, just shows how unrealistic and out of their minds they are already. I've had neighbors of this caliber before and understand the nuisance and hassle they can create over such minuscule BS. Usually it's because their simply miserable to begin with so they find temporary refuge in making others miserable too.

Another thing about this article that really annoys me is all the zoning and technical hoops this guy has to deal with just out of his own garage. Not to mention the neighbors on top. No more than 30% of a dwelling can be for work? How many knitters are getting the same rigmarole? Shouldn't being an able hard working citizen enough to afford and pay taxes on such property be enough? Where does the line get drawn on all the levels and lines of restrictions before it's too much? You all must already understand that under the IRS, we don't own ANYTHING! You can have a mentally screwy neighbor shut your business down, lose your house to the (so called) IRS AND BANKS, and have your kids taken away by CPS because you were deemed inadequate parents because you are now working at MacDonalds and living in a trailer by the river. All because of a rich, selfish, snob, got nothing better to do hag? That this even made a news article is good, but also disappointing. I hope the best for Adam and his family. I know I wouldn't be taking it so that to follow the "laws" and "regulations" if I had two of my own kids futures and well being involved. Someone would be singing a different tune once met with MY attitude. On that note, I commend this guy on his perseverance and ability to follow the procedure as it has been plagued upon him. More of a man than me for enduring it all.

If you read this Adam, much respect man. Keep doing what you do. Your issue has enlightened me a bit more to what I need to be thankful for. I wish the best outcome for you and your family.
