Squatter's Sad Fate

New, 1 comment

A squatter in a village in Devon, England, turned lemons into lemonade when he decided to renovate the very house in which he squatted. The cottage once called the "Eyesore" is now "freshly painted, has a a tub of pansies on the window sill and the villagers could not be happier." While the townspeople have petitioned to let the man stay, the owner—who hasn't set foot in Devon for 17 years—is proceeding with a court case to have him evicted. [Daily Mail]
