Fence Feud: Privacy vs. Neighborly Relations 🏡

In a quest for privacy and safety, our fence-building homeowner may have unintentionally stirred up some neighborly drama. Despite being within zoning regulations, their 6-foot fence now blocks their neighbor's view, leaving them feeling boxed in. To make matters more complicated, the city inspector discovered the neighbor's fire pit partially sits on the fence-builder's property, violating zoning ordinances. The homeowner doesn't plan to take action, as long as their fence remains unharmed. They attempted to communicate with their out-of-town neighbors, but have yet to receive a response. Let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation.

Complying with regulations, small backyard isn't your fault 👍
