Okay, so after a couple of weeks of the run-around, we are finally making headway.
Today we got the permission to begin construction, tomorrow we will have utilities, and Monday the contractor will commence with contracting.
Or whatever it is contractors do.
I have to be at the house before 8:00 in the morning tomorrow, so I can be there when the utilities are turned on. (don't want water running everywhere if there's a problem.)
The funny thing is, getting to this point should never have been this hard. I should not have had to do both of the realtors' jobs. But I did, because that's what it took.
Now we have two weeks from today to do everything from dismantling and rebuilding the deck, to insulating under the addition.
And tomorrow it is supposed to rain.
