Kounalakis has got himself in a corner. He clearly did substantial, un-permitted work. The City wants to inspect. Now what? The fact he is a "developer" makes it worse. Is there a contractors license involved? Pretty brazen misconduct, or so it appears. This is going to be expensive for him. And the City has no reason to be nice to him at this point, given his attitude. Yep, he is in a world of hurt. And his wife wants to be Lt. Gov. That doesn't sound good.

" "The remodeling we did was permitted and allowed and expensive."

If they were permitted why would the town want to see the work. There would be a permit on file for the work along with inspection records. As a builder who has done work in Woodside and know what it's like and how strict they are I call BS. This guy has been doing UNPERMITTED work, guaranteed.
