« Part 12: Dec 3 is THE day Part 13 of Finally, My Dream Shop series Part 14: Building Inspectors Must Be Unhappy People! »

Something happened, but I don’t know what! I missed the construction guy who was waiting for the inspector. But, the good news is that there is some trim up around the windows and doors that was not there this morning….I think that bodes good news… least I hope so. I emailed the General Contractor to find out the status. There is still some painted trim on the floor of the shop, so there is more work to be done. I do know that today’s inspector had to come before we could request the final on the electrical…so that still needs to happen. Anyway, that’s the news as I know it. Thanks all for the crossed toes, fingers and eyes!

Sorry about the screw up. But it will get done. You haven’t paid him all the money have you??

Nah, Karson, I still owe him about 3 grand. We’re just having problems with some very picky inspectors who are worrying about where their next inspection is coming from because of the slow-down in construction. I guess they make about $30.00 per inspection. Dave said that he may start hiring a private inspector for his jobs. I guess these inspectors are certified by the state but hired by the contractor for a specific job. I told him that if I knew at the onset, what I know now, I would have happily added 3 or 4 hundred for a private inspector. The one today was really rude and grumpy during a phone conversation prior to the inspection, according to the construction guy who was here waiting for him. I don’t think it has anything to do with the construction company, but all about the disposition of some inspectors. Anyway, we will get thru it and it shall be relegated to a not-so-fond memory shortly.

There is a name for inspectors but this is a nice place so I won’t use it. Sure hope it all comes out alright.

The inspection process has been the most frustrating aspect of the entire project. Hopefully it will be over tomorrow.
