A cardboard castle isn't junk to at least one Ogden dad and his two children; but it is to the city.
Jeremy Trentelman built the giant castle, complete with a slide, trap door, tunnel and windows, for his 3-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter in their front yard. But on Wednesday, Trentelman received a letter from Ogden City Code Enforcement that the castle constituted "waste materials or junk" and he would have to take it down within 15 days, or face a $125 penalty.
Trentelman's response in a Facebook post? "ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDIN ME!!!?!"
But while he was mad for about an hour, Trentelman said that soon "the ridiculousness of it all just kind of dawned on me, and it was just laughter [from there]."
