Peter Macdonald has four mini-houses on his Stepping Stones Road property and a house that is used as a chapel.

Officials said this is a zoning violation because the property is located in a residential district. They are also concerned because they said Macdonald doesn't have the appropriate electrical or plumbing permits.

Macdonald said he is running a religious organization and is doing nothing wrong.

Macdonald argued his case at Strafford County Superior Court Wednesday afternoon.
