Things are really moving now!

Wow... after a frustrating 4-5 month delay ...
our final cabin plans came in late Friday afternoon.

By Friday night.. the concrete guy had his plans. Touched base w/ the excavator, the rough plumber and the radiant floor guy.

By Saturday morning ... we had three sets of plans to pass out for bids and for the building inspector.

We ran up to Beaver on Sunday morning so we could meet the concrete guy on Monday~ to stake out the site.

Turned in our application, permits and plan to the building inspector.

The basement will be dug today!!!!!! (that is shocking!!)

So, if all keeps going smoothly... we should be throwing logs in about a month.

It's just too dang bad we have to do this in the winter ... we should have been doing this in June.
Mike is very excited... we need to take advantage of his 3 days off every week.
Good thing about winter... people are less busy and more hungry for work.

I'll be back w/ some pictures. I took about 35.

Good news. Let's get this thing moving. Beaver UTAH is a good looking town, but the winter is just around the corner. Good luck with all those contractors and keep them honest. Have a fine Vegas day.

Wow, that's exciting. Congratulations!!!

Since I'm too cheap to spring for anything new, I think I will lock myself out in the garage and pretend it's a cabin.
