A reader sent us this photo set of an unidentified southern California project, with an explanation: "These are photos of an illegal conversion that have been making their way through a long email chain among many SoCal cities. Illegal conversions are a challenge every city has to deal with, but this one is by far the most creative I have ever seen." Is someone taking advantage of a neglected pool at a bank-owned property, or is this just a really ill-advised in-law apartment dreamed up by a homeowner who hates swimming?
