As a millennial, I can't relate to being a homeowner....but I can relate to getting pissed off when people tell me what to do!!! Here are 11 homeowners who stood their ground when they were pressured to move from their property:

1."This huge road in China that was built around a house after an elderly couple refused to move."

3."When Apple was building a massive data center in rural North Carolina, a couple who had lived there for 34 years refused to sell their house and plot of land worth $181,700. After making countless offers, Apple eventually paid them $1.7 million to leave."
