Next Big Step!

We now have a Building Permit! We will be starting next week with slab preparation, need to have an electrician, a plumber, and a concrete specialist for our subs before the first inspection and pour of the slab foundation. My foreman is submitting paperwork for some specialist licenses, so later work will be after those are approved. I am going to be running over to the county seat for recording every sub-contractor, as I have to list each one with the license number. It is not a bad drive, and probably won’t be too frequent. Walhalla is a pretty town.

We will also be running the water line from the meter back to the cottage, over 300 feet. The trench has been dug for that. It was a really cool machine for that. It looked like a chain saw that went into the dirt, then a worm-screw blade at the top to push the dirt to each side of the trench.
