Backyard Houses – Getting Too Close For Comfort

It’s always great to see brand new houses go up around your neighborhood. In most situations it means growth and expansion, but sometimes it can be a little too close for comfort. A couple in the Wallingford neighborhood found this out the hard way when a new house was built up just 5 feet from their property line. In the article written by Seattle Times, they have reported that because of these type of situations, the city is considering a moratorium on these small-lot houses, addressing a loophole in the Seattle building code. They will be moving quickly on the decisions as committee meetings will be underway this week.
