Stop Work Order on Petworth Eyesore

In a move that should make Prince of Petworth proud, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs has issued a Stop Work order on a Petworth eyesore.

The remodelers of the ugly ass house at the corner of Upshur Street and New Hampshire Avenue (4143 New Hampshire Ave) were excavating and backfilling without permits.

In addition the plumber on site wasn’t licensed. (No word if he was keeping it real though.)

I think the DCRA is missing a much larger code violation: color coding yellow brick to yellow vinyl. Yellow being a bad color for brick, it looks even worse when its mis-matched with a tan vinyl-clad addition.
