“The developer’s squatter barricade has been an effective defense so far.”

A reader reports:

“This house is at the corner of 4th and R NW and has been vacant for a year or so, and the porch is often occupied by squatters. A development group bought it a few months ago and I guess are in the “discovery” phase of planning. A couple weeks ago, we woke up to find this inventive structure. For a moment we thought some resourceful squatters built a home, but then thought “who has doors to spare?” The developer’s squatter barricade has been an effective defense so far.”
