The Importance of Considerate Shedworking

Friend of Shedworking Lisa Thompson has been suffering from shed rage as she explains on Enterprise Nation. Here's what she says:
"If your home-based business is disrupted by a neighbour for an utterly pointless reason, can you invoice them for the hours you were unable to work? Our power was cut off for seven hours yesterday so that EDF could run a power line to an illegally built shed on a bluebell wood, owned by an elderly [enter non-libellous noun here...] who lives five miles away. On my accountant’s and solicitor’s advice I wrote to notify him that I would be invoicing him for the disruption to my home business and today I have sent him an invoice which I am confident he will ignore. Do you know of anyone who has had a similar problem who resolved it satisfactorily?”
Any suggestions? The offending shed is pictured.

    My dad invoiced the cable company for lost time, trees cut down, etc. long ago, and I think he got bupkus from it. Although it felt good to send it out in the mail.... :)
