was it a random house or the insulation company?

The insulation company.

Based on google street maps and this listing... nope!

when you stockpile hand sanitizer.

(Obviously kidding. Hope everyone was OK.)

That property has an insulation company - Metro Insulation - on site with all its trucks and storage. You can see the trucks in the photo. I've never understood how this works. The trucks and clearly chemicals are stored on site and I guess operations run out of the three-decker next door? How is this allowed under zoning or city regs in a dense residential neighborhood.
