Workers Peeing in Yard
Maybe I'm overreacting, but when I visited my under-construction townhome today, I was hit with a pungent urine smell in the side yard. The pavers will be installed next week, so I was taking a photo to let the builder know where the drain should go. I visit the house often and never noticed it before, but I don't usually stand there for any length of time. It's like a little alcove between the back door and garage so the workers must be using it as a urinal despite having a porta-potty just down the alley. I attached an older photo; house is almost done now, but this seems to be where they're peeing, and that area will soon be covered by pavers. Am I being unreasonable to be really pissed off that my yard smells like a cat box that's sat in the sun for a month? Won't that smell permeate up through the pavers if they don't remediate it somehow? It started raining while I was there, and the smell got even worse. I don't want to be unreasonable, but I really think the builder should make it clear to the workers that yards are not toilets and that it's disgusting and disrespectful to piss enough in a yard to make it stink like that. Yes, I fired off an email today making that clear, but I'd also love any suggestions on what to expect from them in terms of making sure that odor is gone before they lay those pavers.
