The county called, and it is possible our plans are approved... I am supposed to call the county structural engineer and schedule a meeting with the architect, our structural engineer and myself (contractor) to go over the "Special Inspection Plan", due to the complexity of our structure design, we need to have "special" during construction inspections done by our structural engineer during construction to verify concrete anchor points, sheer wall nailing patterns etc.  I get to pay $100/hr for the inspections by my structural engineer (something like this), but actually I'm kind of happy about this because I trust our structural guy, and think this is a good thing.

So hopefully I can schedule this meeting, and with the signed inspection agreement with the county we pay our "truckload of money" as the Plans reviewer indicated, and we will have a Structural Building Permit... perhaps before the end of the decade, or even before the end of the month!  Whee!

Did some code research and learned that our 200-A 3" underground conduit can handle 320-A continuous cable from PGE (Portland General Electric).  I need to research getting a 320-A Meter socket with disconnect switches so that we can wire the existing panel to one 200-A disconnect, and the new (shop) 200-A load center to the second 200-A disconnect. (2 ea. 200-A panels long term).  I did some calculations and for all-electric hydronic heat (with solar backup) 200 Amps wasn't going to cut it for current capacity... so had to re-think the existing 200-A meter socket.

Called Verizon this week, and they are going to move the phone from overhead to underground to the conduit I provided on Monday (Whoo Hoo). $30
