We went to pick up our permit today and were surprised to learn that it was $1,000 more than what they said it was back in February, but we had no choice but to pay it, so that is the first hit on our budget; hopefully there will be no more! Called up a couple of surveyors to get an idea on cost to stake out the house. Everyone we talked with wanted $600 - $700 to do it, so we will be doing it ourselves, I stopped by Lowe's today and picked up some stakes and marking paint to do it this weekend. Hopefully it does not rain. We are looking at 6/10/08 to break ground.
