STOCKTON SPRINGS, Maine — The owner of a home condemned by the town said she’s determined to live there in spite of the state supreme court’s recent decision backing the town.

“My plan has always been to live in that house, and that hasn’t changed,” Hollie Beal, owner of the 675-square-foot Sandy Point house, said Friday.

The latest development in her three-year dispute with the town came Thursday, when the Maine Supreme Judicial Court rejected her appeal in a 14-page decision.

Beal said she has pumped about $30,000 into the building so far, removing a chimney, replacing floor joists and the roof, gutting the interior, and fixing plumbing and electrical systems. Now she needs to finish up the interior work and finish siding the exterior of the building. The building also needs a new heating system, because removing the chimney rendered the existing one useless, Beal said.

People in the community have offered to help her get the work done. An electrician friend has helped repair the building’s wiring.

She said that members of a Belfast church visited her father recently and offered to ask their fellow parishioners to support Beal with expertise or labor, but Beal couldn’t recall the name of the church.

“The troops are rallying, and it’s going to happen,” she said.

Even with the support and renovations to this point, Beal said she’s worried the town might find additional problems that will prevent her from moving in.

“I don’t feel they’ve ever made it fully clear what work needed to be done,” Beal said.

Town officials disagree. Select Board member Lesley Cosmano said the town has been clear about what work was needed from the start and that Beal had numerous opportunities throughout the town’s process and court proceedings to provide photographs and other evidence to prove the building had been brought up to code.

“The town feels this matter could have been settled a long time ago,” Cosmano said, adding that the the town’s code enforcement officer will be in touch with Beal in the coming weeks to set up a site visit.

Now that the court proceedings are over, Beal has 30 days in which to finish renovations to bring the building up to code. After that, town officials will meet again to discuss the building’s future, Cosmano said. Once the 30-day window is up, the town has the option of demolishing the building.

Beal maintains she has tried to work with the town to make the required improvements to her house, which she purchased 10 years ago for $13,500. She lived in it until 2014, when the dispute with the town began. That year, she hired a contractor to jack up the house and make it level and add a new metal roof.

In May 2015, the board found the structure was unsafe, unstable, unsanitary and a fire hazard, according to court documents. The board gave Beal about 90 days to have a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician bring the building up to code and to make it structurally sound.

She appealed that decision in Superior Court, which kept the order from being enforced. When that judge sided with the town, Beal appealed to the state’s highest court.

Beal said she plans on getting the work done, and likely will have a third-party inspector look it over before bringing town officials in to inspect the house. If all the boxes are checked off, she hopes to move back in as soon as possible.
