Well, it rained intermittantly for 5 days and today was the first “dry” day. My contractor could not submit the plans to the city for the permit because of something about a boat and a guy named Columbus. The “Tree People” have been itchin’ to make some logs for my turning and wood stock, but alas, some tadpoles(?) are swimming in the “pond” which has taken over where my shop footing will be and the “Tree People can’t do their thing in hip boots. We’re going to try to do the tree work Wednesday. Tomorrow I’m going to help nature and try to find some place to sump the “pond” to.
The contractor hopes he will be able to get the short version of the permit approval process which is done while he waits. Other than that it will take about five days. Things are slow right now in the building industry tho, and I suspect the city has a few minutes to spare to approve the permit sooner than five days. He plans to get the cement people in first to bring the fill for the shop and prepare for the extension to the site off of my driveway. There is a small patch of cement about 4’ x 5’ which is located eight feet off of the side of the garage, and in the path to where the sliding door into my shop will be. I have no earthly idea why it is there or what it was used for. It came with the house which I bought 2 years ago. I see the original owners occassionally as their parents live next door…..maybe I’ll ask if I think of it.
I wonder if I’ll ever see the start of this workshop!
Go Jaguars! They were great Sunday, yes?
