Last Friday, May 2nd, we applied for our building permit. We have almost everything in order and only need to complete one additional form regarding insulation R-values. The building inspector mentioned that the hardest part about getting approved, is the septic system permit, which we already received from the Health Department, so there shouldn’t be any issues with the permit approval barring any unforeseen circumstances.
There are weight restrictions still in place on the rural roads around Merrickville, but as soon as those are lifted (next week or two) and we get our building permit, we can break ground!
First order of business is to find a good site surveyor to stake out the building site, then we can get the excavation crew in to prepare for the concrete forming / foundation contractors!
