Well, at least it's not being converted to a multi-family. That's the worst. Looks like they are going to turn it into a side-hall colonial and won't be much wider than what is there now.

The point is, Italian Girl, that what they are doing is not what they got their permit for. You would need at minimum, a partial demo permit, as well as a construction fence around the perimeter of the property.

One family for now. Wait until it gets sold. Then it may become a two family, maybe three or maybe a flop house.

In the old days in MV nobody dare make a mess, torture the neighborhood like that and get away with it.
