Description

I was excited when the old cabinet maker's shop was purchased in 2007. I heard it was going to be converted to a single-family home, and the permits and construction that started shortly thereafter confirmed as much.

Fast forward to November, 2011, and the permitted-work has not been completed on the property. Once or twice a year, some contractor or another is coming out and making some banging noise, but no visible progress is made.

Certainly the original work permits have expired by now, but the facade still sports plywood. The rear door on S Franklin St is boarded up in violation of L&I's "doors and windows" regulations, and new sheathing that was installed several years ago is still exposed.

I hesitated to file a complaint for a couple years, but going on 4 years is just getting ridiculous.
