In the meantime, Grapin has had to pay nearly $1,800 in permits and fees to build the $1,400 tree house.

If they make him take it down they should give back all of his money. But you know they won't.

This to me is the key thing today about zoning and permits. It’s all about revenue to the City/county. I had a zoning Nazi once who spent all of her time driving around looking for infractions. My personal infraction was that I had mildew on the north side of my house. I had three days from the issuance of the notice to ‘get it fixed’, or the fines would start.

Living in swampy Florida means that you ‘will’ have mildew on the north side of your house most of the year. I had a pressure washer to keep the house and driveway clean of the damn stuff.

I found out later that they had a photo data base that they would use to see if any unauthorized, ie. not paid the proper fee, work had been done to the properties.
