Great Britain-- the world's cruelest Homeowners Association

Talk about deed restrictions.

All of England is one giant restriction. You have to get government's permission to nail two timbers together.

This guy, admittedly, was probably going a bit overboard in strictly 'eccentric' terms, but who knows-- we can't even see his house, built without permission, and concealed behind haystacks in an attempt to take advantage of a time limit on action against a building.

His house was hidden behind haystacks. For years. Nobody knew it was there.

The local government is not amused and will not be counting the years in which the house was concealed against the time limit. It's coming down.
