Everett, Washington homeowner Paul Larson says a developer excavated land surrounding his home five years ago to make way for a large subdivision.
The work, he says, left behind sinkholes, toppled trees, a ruptured septic tank and waterline.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars to fight the developers in court, he decided to spend a couple hundred dollars on paint to graffiti his own house to make the neighborhood a little less attractive to potential buyers.
