Leave it to Beaver

we have a sitter who will come to the house for our big baby, Sunbird ... he's our 12 yr old Catalina McCaw. Quite spoiled I'd say.

We're outta here tomorrow morning .... escaping the triple digit heat!

Heading up to Beaver ~ in attempts to get a septic tank permit,

so we can get a building permit,

so we can get bids on our plans,

so we can start building this gosh darn cabin, before winter, that we were planning to build in 8 years,

so we can keep our "like gold" water rights that we can lose if we don't have a main residence started by next summer,

so we can use that expensive 700' drinking well we drilled 4 years ago!!

Whew..... we're only getting started in this venture and
I hope I can get thru it all without having a stress stroke/heart attack.

I can say that we've only just begun ... and it's true .... building is a nightmare.

Glad you are able to get away and be constructive at the same time! I hope you can get it all done so you can take advantage of the work you've already done... good luck!

Escape the triple digit heat while you can! Sounds like a lot but try not to stress too much. Take time to smell the roses, carnations, or something that smells good. Sometimes taking a second to yourself is always a good thing.

Wow, that's just complicated. Water rights? Well? I'm going to go and be thankful for that city water I enjoy.

Good luck getting everything started! Sounds like you have a bit of work cut out for yourself!

Wells scare me.

Good luck in getting your permit, and the next one, and the bids & have fun building!

A lot of it will probably be a headache....but you have to admit, that overall it is exciting & some of it will be a lot of fun!

Slackermommy said...

Wow, that's some project! You'll be so proud when it's done.

Good luck Terri, sounds like quite a challenge you've got there.

Good luck with all that. Any home improvemeny (or any project) that involves the state, county, and/or city government has the potential to be a pain in the ass. Being comfortable with that up front is what makes the process go easier. Looking forward to pictures and updates.
