ROCKVILLE, Minn. (AP) - A judge in central Minnesota says a new lake home must be torn down after a neighbor complained about the size of the building.

According to court documents, Kathleen and Matt Mimbach began the project on their property on Grand Lake in Rockville in November 2015.

Building permits filed with the city called it “a remodel with a new addition.” But neighbors Thomas and Holly Ruether contend it actually was a teardown and the building of a new, larger home.

The Ruethers’ attorney says his clients’ property has decreased in value, and that the new, two-story home encroaches on both side yards.

WJON-AM reports Stearns County Judge Vicki Landwehr ruled last week that the new home must be torn down.

An attorney for the Mimbachs says they likely will appeal.
