offmymeds: WTF? I submitted this same story from the same source several days ago. Is it the $5/mo? Is that it?
Ima4nic8or: The fact that the porch was converted from a porch to a bedroom without a permit has no relevance, unless you are telling me that as a result of a permit applicaction the city would have said "no, you cant convert it to a bedroom. A bus might crash into it and kill a kid." I have no doubt they would have said no to such a conversion but I find it highly improbable that concerns about a vehicle hitting the house and killing the occupant of the bedroom would have entered into the equation at all.This is just one of those shiatty things that happens in life. The kid may just as well have been killed by a plane falling into his bedroom in the back of the house, or if the bus had more momentum and he were in a different spot, killing him in the front room.More importantly, what business is it of the city if you convert YOUR OWN porch to a bedroom? That is the homeowners call. Screw the permit requirements. Government needs to get the heck out of peoples lives and quit being so unnecessarily intrusive.
Your Average Witty Fark User: A Shambling Mound: This is important. If they had applied for and received the appropriate permits they wouldn't be now hearing that the conversion was not permitted. Which changes everything, of course.Wait, what?/dealing with construction permits right now//doesn't matter what state or city you're in///f*ck those guys. In the ear. With a permit.How the fark do you know the current residents are responsible for the conversion? Fark you. In the ear. With a broken beer bottle.
