The town has issued a “stop work” order against a couple building a tiny, 200-square-foot house on wheels behind a Framingham church.
In a post on Instagram, Seth and Christine Terramane shared a picture of the bright orange order a Framingham building inspector left Tuesday, ordering they halt work on the project. The couple, who were featured in a Daily News story last Sunday about the growing trend of tiny houses, say they plan to find a way around the setback.
An inspector from Building Commissioner Michael Tusino’s office cited “work without a permit/zoning” as the reason for the stop work order.
“First of all they didn’t apply for a building permit so I don’t know exactly what they’re doing,” Tusino said Friday. “Based on your article, they’re building a tiny house. We’re looking at it like, ‘you’re building a structure on a property, stop working, come tell us what you’re doing.’”
Seth Terramane, who is building the home himself on a trailer, said Friday, “We had already called and made sure our build was legitimate beforehand. I don’t entirely know where this is coming from.”
