DALLAS -

A Texas man isn't too thrilled after a construction crew tore down his house – by mistake.

David Underwood says he returned to his home in Fort Worth, Texas, last Saturday to find nothing a clear slab. He discovered the city was supposed to tear down a home on the same block and just a few houses down.

City officials apologized to Underwood for the blunder.

Underwood says the vacant lake house belonged to his late grandmother. He says he planned to fix it up and move in to it with his wife.
