House Update #7

We have a building permit – yay!

After a couple of weeks of working with our architect and structural engineer to get the extra paperwork the county required (a new requirement this year, of course!) we finally have our permit. That means as soon as we get a final bid from one more excavation company we can start work!

While we are waiting we have more work to do with the tree-removal process.  Big Man and his dad finished getting all the trees down, and are working on stripping the branches and cutting firewood. It’s mostly important that the trees get moved to the lower part of our property where they won’t be in the way of the building process. Here are before and after pictures that show some of the trees that were removed.

I’ll update again when we have news of the excavation, which will hopefully be sooner rather than later.
