Westhampton home near completion after town bylaw forced them to redo foundation

Hampshire County

A Westhampton family has been trying to build a home for years and they are almost done. 

It hasn’t been an easy process. Their building permit was revoked because the foundation they poured was just a few feet too close to the road. So, they had to demolish it and pour a new one further away.

Town bylaws require homes to be built at least 50 feet back from the property line bordering the road. It was originally 46 feet away. Westhampton Administrative Assistant Cheryl Provost told 22News the town’s former building inspector made an error.

Now, the new foundation has been set and work continues. The walls are up, and windows have been placed.

There is no word on when the home will be completed. The homeowners told 22News they just can’t wait until it’s all done.
