Missouri residents Mark and Brenda Voss built their dream house in Hammock Dunes. But six months later, that dream has turned into an nightmare with the discovery that the house was built on the wrong lot.

Their three-story vacation house actually sits on the lot next to the one they own in the gated Ocean Hammock resort community, according to the Daytona Beach New-Journal.

“We are in total disbelief, just amazed this could happen,” said Mark Voss, who owns a property management and real estate company in central Missouri. “We may have moved [to Ocean Hammock] someday. But, with this headache and grief, we’re not so sure. The Midwest is looking pretty good right now.”

The builder, Keystone Homes, has contacted the two lot owners and is trying to negotiate a settlement, said Robbie Richmond, Keystone’s vice president.

“The buck stops with the builder. We know that. We are in the process of trying to schedule a conference call and find a fair resolution without the lawyers,” Richmond said. “I have built about 600 homes in Flagler County and this has never happened to me before. It does happen, but it’s rare.” [Daytona Beach News-Journal] –Christopher Cameron
