We do have the permit to build John's house.
Very exciting to have that done. Carlton got it about a week ago. Foundation going in this week. Framing next week, I hope.

The permitting process continues, though slowly. Randy (the contractor) has been sending me texts that go like this:
"Went to permit office at 11:30. Waited 29 minutes til they could fit me in. Asked for Robert H to help me with the floodplain survey. I'm sorry he just went to lunch. The Stoppers stopped me again. Will try him later ;)"
"I found a no stopper today. Basically she just gave me what I need to give to the surveyor. He was right tho. She said yes you can't access the flood info on computer except in house."
"It's crazy. She told me I had to go to Soil and Water next because part of it is wetlands. C'mon!"
"Well, Jay the surveyor is saying now I know what to do so I can go to work and get it for you. Then we take that (the flood plain survey that he has to prepare) and go up to try to get a permit unless the stoppers stop us. I have told him we are desperately in need of our survey so please get 'er done. Haven't heard back."
|John's property has the grey blob in the middle. That's where his house was located. This aerial photo was taken before we build the shop. You can see that a large portion of his property is wetlands, but we aren't building there.|
So that's where we are now. I hope this week we will get the permit.
