From yesterday's Tribune: While the Torgersens and Eastons normally see the rooftops of the other houses along Reeves Lane below them, this house extends more than 5 feet above the line of the hill. (Gasp!! 5 Feet!!)
"We used to have a view of the mountains," Janet Torgersen lamented. "He didn't have to take everyone's view."
All together now, let's have a little pity party for the Torgersens and the Eastons, who think that because they built their starter-castles ABOVE everyone else, that the lots also came with unobstructable views. How DARE someone build THEIR Garage-Mahal right next to MY Starter-Castle??!! I mean, THE NERVE of some people!
Poor Janet. Now she can't look down the hill at her loyal subjects anymore.
After continuous complaints from the Eastons and Torgersens, the owner of the new home had a "decorative vent cover" installed on the back side, facing the lovely neighbors. See for yourself - what do YOU think it is? Cactus? Abstract art? Yeah, I don't think so.
Janet Torgersen said she spoke with - and showed photos to - Riverton City Manager Lance Blackwood and others at City Hall.
Wood (owner of the house under construction) said he might be willing to change the vent covering. "If it's offensive to them - as they have been to me - I'm not above an apology [from them]."
Poor Janet. See you at church on Sunday, though!!
