Hey come one, what's the big deal? It's the Hamptons...

PS It was on Yahoo, the garage was in the wrong place.

While I personally think it is a disgrace that they tore it down to rebuild, knowing the Town of Southampton, they could have been forced to do it at a later stage. If the garage was in the wrong place per the plans and approvals, they could have been hit with a huge fine down the road when the town came to inspect it.

But I also think it is crazy ; but then again, that area is so wealthy that anything goes.

Nothing unusual about that, there are tear downs all the time. If there is a code violation and you are still in the framing process, they make you tear it down, it happens. Moving a house while in the framing phase is near impossible, epspecially if you need to move the foundation too.
