orrible. Don't the authorities have real crimes+criminals to go after. So petty. It's shameful.

Oh my goodness! It's absolutely gorgeous!! It would be devastating to tear it down, for sure. I did notice, though, the one comment that is not really highlighted in the story ... he built it on greenbelt land! That does change things quite a bit. The land was meant to be a corridor for wild animals. He definitely needed to think of the welfare of nature and the environment before building a structure to benefit only his family.
Thanks for sharing!

Shame, if it hadn't been built on greenbelt land it would have been grand, fancy putting all that work into such a masterpiece..
