Some neighbours are just nothing short of arseholes.
Can you imagine living next to this? Can you imagine trying to sell?
Is it any wonder neighbours come to blows?

And WildTurkey? That’s the lamest troll from you yet.

You surprise me Al! Actually, I can imagine living next to Warren. I know the people that own the house next door. He’s a lovely bloke and a great neighbour.

Bam! And… end thread.

Any one have his number I have a 12 volt waeco fridge that needs repair I’m thinking he might be the man. I lost his card with number ect

I wouldn’t leave fridges and washing machines in my front yard. I’d be worried about local kids or pets climbing into them, or tipping them over.

He’ll also do you a great deal on a fridge (I’ve bought two over the last twenty years) and repair things for a fraction of the price of a commercial outfit. If this was happening in some other city people would think it adds to the overall character (and indeed utility) of the place. Personally I think it’s more admirable and generally productive for Warren to be providing the good folk of c-town with cheap recycled whitegoods than it is for the RA interweb agit propers to be bleating from their behind their keyboards.

keeping the neighbours’ house values down?! i doubt it in kaleen but if so then think of fridge guy as a natural check on prices – the first home buyer’s friend. personally i think warren and whatsername sound like they have some pluck – no bad thing in neighbours, and they’d be able to fix your fridge for you.

By that rationale we should be thanking violent criminals and arsonists for having the courage to place downward pressure on house prices around their suburbs. However, on balance I think the harm this kind of extreme behaviour poses far outweighs any collateral benefit in terms of reducing asset prices.

I don’t see violent criminality/arson as in any way comparable to having a running dispute with ACAT about a front yard, myself. Try as I might I can’t understand the outrage about this. What exactly is the “harm” caused by seeing white goods on a lawn? It’s an annoyance, maybe, if you’re that troubled by what someone else does with their yard. Yes it’ll keep Delegate from taking out Neat Street of 2013 but a bit of live and let wouldn’t hurt.

Call the scrap metal guys who do free pickup in return for not paying you anything and give them the address. Problem solved.

Sorry, there’s no free metal pick up in the ACT anymore. In fact your have to pay THEM to pick up the scrap.

Seems every suburb has one. In Duffy it’s at 22 Tullaroop Street where the guy has a backyard panel beating business, unfortunately it’s in his front yard! When you look at the place, you have to wonder how good his work might be if his maintenance to his property and the fact that he obviously has complete disrepect for his unfortunate neighbours is any guide? Seems he parks half wrecked and unregistered cars up and down the local streets too, very considerate to the locals!

Looking through street view, Duffy seems to be the loser, especially mirrool st. One house that seems to rival the house in op and one disgustingly huge what appears to be a spray booth for cars.

I wonder what would happen of these places got reported? Same as kaleen?

Love these new tourist attractions – can we get a list of 100 together and send it to the Centenary people?

I want a tour bus, not unlike the real kramer tour of new york. I would gladly pay for my international guests to see this aspect of our nation’s capital, just for the LOLS.

Many moons ago, there was a bus tour that operated from Queanbeyan/Harman that did this very thing. Pat’s Uninteresting Tours.

Unfortunately, by the time I arrived at Harman in 1990, it was done and dusted.

It’s just a home business repairing whitegoods.

He’s too tight to rent/buy himself a shed somewhere industrial like he’s supposed to, and he’s clearly got a requirement for it due to more than a garage worth of business.

So you can tell us all you want about how nice he is to customers, but he’s still a jerk to anyone that lives near him.

All in all, there’s a lot of slop there, as well as a healthy dose of extremely anal upper-middle-class petty white-picket-fence mentality and the conditions of ACT leaseholds should be rewritten to provide better protections for leaseholders. privacy from government interference.

I haven’t read it yet, but I gotta say, if I wanted to live in something that looks like Fyshwick instead of leafy suburbia I’d live in Fyshwick and I’d feel discriminated against if somebody tried to change the neighbourhood I’d bought into into something completely different to what it started out to be. On the other hand there is those multistorey terraces in Gungahlin with commercial ground floors as an example of something a bit different for Canberra so I reckon there’s completely potential for providing small business people with appropriate affordable places to live and work without them having to leave dumps of stuff right in the middle of suburbia.
This is getting as bad as the cyclist threads. There’s room for ALL of us, but it has to be done with some consideration for the needs of ALL.
Going to read links now.
