With Permit in Hand…Building has Commenced!

Finally, we have our long awaited building permit!  Yea!!!  While we were on our anniversary trip in Guatemala (more on the trip later), our permit was approved. Anticipating that this would happen, Eddie arranged for our builder to pay the permit fee for us, so that he could pick up the permit and commence building immediately.  We returned from our trip Tuesday evening, so we had to wait until yesterday to stop by the lot to check out the progress.  The footings are dug and are in the process of being completed with re-bar and concrete.  Here are a few photos:

This area is the carport. The footings and partial walls around are being completed first so that it can be back-filled thereby creating additional work area and material storage. The lot does not afford much extra space!

  1. I am so happy for you and Eddie!! Thank goodness!!! I bet you feel like you have had a real lesson in patience. Hopefully the rest of the process will be breeze in comparison. Anyway, it is time to rejoice! CONGRATULATIONS ON THE START OF YOUR NEW HOME!
