Question about construction laws in Washington, DC

Every morning, of every day of the past 2 weeks, I have been woken up at 7am by the construction on the townhouse next door. This comes right on the heals of being woken up, every day, at 7 am for 3 months by the construction on the townhouse on the other side of mine.

I understand that it's probably legal to do construction every day during the week, but aren't there some laws that you can't do construction during the weekend? Or at least on Sundays?

I had this problem too! I looked it up on dc.gov and found out that you CANNOT work on Sundays. Here's a fact sheet for waht constitutes illegal construction: http://dcra.dc.gov/dcra/frames.asp?doc=/dcra/lib/dcra/information/publications/residents_guide_to_illegal_construction.pdf

There's a number to report it: 202-442-STOP (7867). You'll have to give the exact address and details, so you may want to make sure they start up again on Sunday before you call.

I'm pretty sure that you're not allowed to do construction on Sundays. I looked into it a couple years ago becuase I had that same problem of being wooken up at 8am on weekend mornings. This was when I was living in Arlington, though- rules might be different in DC
