INDIALANTIC, Fla. - Stacked shipping containers in the backyard of one man's home in Brevard County aren't making some neighbors happy.
According to Brevard County, the owner was building a "man cave" in the backyard.
Chuck Burley lives a couple of doors down from the home. He says the homeowner is active duty military and wanted to build something for him and his kids.
"He waited two-plus years for the permits to go through. It's not willy-nilly, it's not fly by night. He didn't do it on the spur of the moment. He submitted plans a long, long time ago," Burley said.
Another neighbor said she wasn't a fan of the stacked shipping containers. She told FOX 35, "Man caves are in your house, you have a room inside, but not outside." She went on to say, "It doesn't make any sense."
A different neighbor said it was "unbelievable what was happening behind her house."
The county did issue a permit to the homeowner, but it's unclear the details of what that permit allowed. According to Brevard County codes, a new cargo shipping container may be used as residential storage but no stacking of containers shall be allowed.
In a statement to FOX 35, Don Walker the Communications Director of Brevard County said "As of this morning the County used a Stop Work Order, which essentially stops everything in place. We are currently evaluating our options. We have spoken (the owner), who has expressed a willingness to work with us on a workable solution."
The county has scheduled a meeting with the owner next Thursday to find a solution.
FOX 35 did attempt to reach the homeowner by phone and going to the home but no one answered.
