« Part 4: The Rain Stopped...Now I have Tadpoles ! Part 5 of Finally, My Dream Shop series Part 6: Good to Go »

Whatever is in the “pond” where my shop will soon be jumps. They are tiny things so I can’t describe them but they jumped out of the way as I paddled thru on my tractor lawn mower. At times I needed fins and I almost got stuck several times in the mud. But, be it known that I was successful in cutting the water off at grass height, and we are good to go for the tree trimming tomorrow. The “Tree People” are going to bring something to lay down over some of the mud, and I suggested to them last night that they might want to stop at the nursery and get some bales of pine straw to improve the working conditions.

And the GOOD NEWS is:

Here’s a copy of the email sent to me by the general contractor:

“The permit ap. was denied because a window flashing detail was missing The designer will have corrections done today, we will resubmit tomorrow. Zoning did approve so we should have permit tomorrow. I will be meeting my conc. Sub tomorrow late morning to go over job. You do not need to be there. Thanks”

Is the shop really going to happen?

You are sooo lucky! I am totally jealous! I want a dedicated shop in the worst way. Can you post the plans or some elevations so we could se what it will look like? That must be so exciting, to be kicking off construction!
I see you are a climber! I worked in the CATV construction industry for a long time, I have gaffed my share of poles…I also worked in telecom for a long time but not for telco, I did PBX install and maint. Good luck
