“Since then, his home has become something of a landmark. Treesh said former mayors have visited and tourists make stops. A sailing club in Norfolk gave him extra masts, and he routinely awakens in the morning to find gifts –rope, propellers, old boat chairs – outside his door.”

From Pilotonline.com:

His girlfriend Jerrie DeLozier is more optimistic. DeLozier calls Treesh “the artistic one” and herself “the logical one.” She acknowledged that some pieces of the Boat House, as it is known in the neighborhood, will have to go. But she’s hoping she can get the summons stayed, and in the meantime obtain a survey of the property, and apply for a variance for the carport/yacht stern.

“We really would like to keep the boat,” DeLozier said. “That’s his heart, it really is.”

One of the comments from article:

Chic’s Beach is such a cool and funky place and his home fits in perfectly . . . particularly on that street. Though he should have followed the rules, hopefully, there can be minimal adjustments, and the character of the house can remain the same.

  1. Do city representative really care about zoning??? They try to change it, when it suits them, despite public outcry.

  2. I hope they leave him alone. He has been a great neighbor and adds to the character of our community. If you move to Chic’s Beach and expect normalcy you have moved to the wrong place. We are where Characters are Welcome!
