Our construction permit is in the final stages, and could be ready Monday or Tuesday of next week. Our contractor, Chas.Bender and I had planned on a February 1st start. I expect we will actually put the shovel in the ground in about a week– perhaps February 9, 2009.
Boy, I sure know I’ve said that before. But we have the right budget, the right contractor, and have submitted for construction permit. I’m finalizing our construction loan and we’re looking forward to beginning construction in early February, and expect to be under construction for four months.
We continue to salvage great materials from wonderfully unexpected places. So far, we’ve found bath fixtures, tile, doors, lighting, and lots of oak and maple trim. As the snow falls, we see the hope of spring!
