Kanye West’s Low-Income Housing Project Is Pissing Off His Neighbors

August 21, 2019 / Posted by:

Kanye West announced last month that his latest questionable project was a low-income prefabricated domed housing project, inspired by Star Wars, that was being built in the middle of the woods in California. I’m sure we all figured Kanye’s attempt at a housing solution would turn out to be a mess. I pictured a family inserting the keys to their new house into the front door and discovering that their new “house” was nothing more than a poorly-constructed 2D facade stolen from a dumpster behind Lucasfilm. As it turns out, it’s a mess before anyone has ever moved in. The houses are domed, and it sounds like they’re doomed. Are you shocked? We’re all shocked!

Kanye’s initial production happened at an undisclosed location somewhere near the San Francisco area. At some point, Kanye decided to begin production at his home in Calabasas. But he didn’t get a building permit, and Page Six says that his neighbors ratted him out. LA County Sheriff deputies made a visit to Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s house on Sunday after receiving numerous calls complaining of nighttime construction. Building inspectors also made a visit to Kanye’s work site, and they reportedly found the structures were permanent, not prototypes, which violated building codes.

Unless a building permit is obtained by September 15th, Kanye will be forced to demolish the domes in his backyard. This is what construction looked like a few weeks ago. Note: those domes are reportedly fifty feet high. Coincidentally, you’d have to be that high to think this was a good idea.

Hearing that Kanye has been building Star Wars houses in the dead of night in his own backyard is exactly where I figured this project would go. The only things missing from his shady work site are a rotting piece of plywood with the words “KEEP OUT NO PEEKING” spray painted on it, and a port-a-potty that doubles as 2×4 storage.

So will Kanye get that permit? He’s rich, so yeah – probably. I just can’t understand how Kim Kardashian let him build that in their backyard? Wait – I think I got it. Kim snuck a peek outside and saw all those huge, garish artificial domes, and figured her husband was creating a giant monument to herself.
