A tad bit of excitement about thw whole adventure is coming up again! A couple of weeks ago, we FINALLY received this in the mail:
It's a building permit!!
Yes, it has finally arrived, and we were so excited about it. Our property has also been cleared of trees and most of the shrubs in May, actually, when we checked today, all the roots and other stuff had been cleared and the ground leveled.
Our property, about 3 weeks ago.
Today, we met with our building engineer, Mr. O. again. We signed off the final details on the house (who would have thought that the way the doors open was something worth discussing...). We almost cannot believe it, but right now, there's nothing really for us to do. Mr. O. will stop by the property to measure it out. The soil analysis is ordered. At some point, we will have to put in the preliminary applications for water, electricity, and gas utilities, and we still need to provide the insurance for the house, and we're set to start! Mr. O. says it may be as early as the first or second week of July. Yes, we're getting closer to our house one little mouse step at a time, and there have been a few during the last few weeks!
