The California owner of a “Flintstones”-themed house has reached a settlement in a lawsuit, which will allow her to keep her cartoon sculptures.
Located in a San Francisco suburb, the town of Hillsborough filed a lawsuit in 2019 against the home’s owner, Florence Fang.
Fang purchased the home in 2017 and began erecting sculptures of dinosaurs, “Flintstone” characters, and other landscaping, without applying for permits.
Other residents in the area took issue with the appearance and the attention it brought, according to NBC News. After ignoring multiple “stop work” orders, the town brought a lawsuit against Fang. Fang then countersued the town.

The suit was settled in April but is only gaining attention now because it was previously under a gag order.
“The parties have reached an amicable resolution of the case to the satisfaction of all the parties, such that the improvements made to the Flintstone House will be permitted to remain,” the suit stated.
The settlement allows Fang to keep her creative “Flintstone” recreation and $125,000 from the town for lawsuit costs, but Fang must apply for permits going forward before implementing changes to the exterior and landscaping of the home.
