A Santa Rosa, Calif. homeowner got a lot of attention for the display of nude mannequins in his yard.
A neighbor filed a complaint that Jason Windus’ new fence was to high, violating city code. He decided a naked garden party was a fitting response to having to take the fence down to three feet.
“As you drive through the neighborhood you’ll see that nobody else’s fence had to be cut down but mine,” Windus told KTVU News.
Windus built the 6-foot-high fence on his corner lot on to keep his dogs in, but agreed to cut the fence down after being threatened with a fine.
“They were going to fine me a lot of money if I didn’t cut the fence down,” Windus said. “I don’t know who [the neighbor] is and I’m sure they’re not going to come forward.”
Windus said he had the mannequins lying around in the yard.
“I was doing a job in Sebastopol. We cleaned out an entire clothing store and I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away because they were so cool,” Windus said.
The display is now the talk of the town.
“I wasn’t expecting any of this,” he said. “We’ve had like 50 people stop, taking pictures, telling me how great it is.”
