Permitting Process. Emotions. Crazy Ride.

This last month has been a roller coaster.

Excitement. Patience. Frustration. Elation. Underwhelmed. Overwhelmed. Excitement.

I now know what some of my clients must feel. Those sweet and patient souls!

The Permitting Process of remodeling/building a new space is the feeling akin to taking an exam. You prepare as much as you possibly can but when it comes time, you just have to dive-in and do it. There are things that you understand, things that stump you and some things where you have absolutely no idea what is being asked of you. You want to do well and get everything perfect on the first try but sometimes, you have to revisit a problem to try and find the right solution.

This is what my last month has been.

Thankfully, I can now say that the ‘examination’ or Permitting Process is finally over!!!

Permits have been approved and we are ecstatic and energized to get moving. (can you tell from Andy’s expression?)

Today, the plans were confirmed and picked-up from the city by my wonderful, GC, Andy Paris.

Excavation starts this weekend. I spent all day today assembling a crew of friends and clearing out my back yard of my belongings.
