Watch: Harrisville 'Shaking House' Woman Seeks Help
A Harrisville woman has turned to a north country engineering company to prove what she already knows - that her house is shaking.
Sandy Chambers hired Gymo Architecture, Engineering & Land Surveying, a Watertown company, to independently verify her home on Maple Street shakes.
Sandy blames the company located directly behind her house - Harrisville Dry Kiln - for the vibrations.
"No one is helping, no one is even trying and this is the life that we live right here," she told 7 News Tuesday.
During our visit - our second since January - we observed blinds shaking.
Sandy and her husband Joel have sued Harrisville Dry Kiln. The company declined comment Tuesday.
William Boulter of GYMO has visited the Chambers home two times.
"As far as I know, the house doesn't shake when they (Harrisville Dry Kiln) turn the machines off," Boulter said. "She is really affected by this whole thing - and the fact that nobody really wants to listen to her and in fact what she is saying is absolutely true."
Sandy and Joel have tried to put their home up for sale. They say realtors have told them the house, with all its problems, is unsellable.
"Maybe you could sell it when the plant wasn't running. I can't see anybody wanting to purchase that house," said Boulter.
