If they gut the house next to you

600 Q disaster

…and they dig a hole, call a lawyer.
There is a good chance that your house is in danger.
I got an email about a building collapse in Shaw at 632 Q St, NW. The picture is of all the permits the builders had as well as a posted drawing of what they were trying to do. Anyway, the house next to the construction got damaged and the basement and 1st floor rear of the adjoining house is exposed.
There is a better picture over at DCFD.COM of the damage to the adjoing house.
Similar thing on 5th Street where a bad gut job ate the house next to it.
Same thing for Q & 9th St where bad construction ate one or two adjoining structures.
