Got the stamped drawings back this morning from the engineer. He has a couple more days' work on them, but what he gave us today will allow us to go for the permit on Monday. Yay!!!!! I stopped by the permit office this morning to review the docs I had against what they appeared to need. Seemed I had everything once I got the foundation drawings. That was a great surprise. Even better was the valuation that I suggested. I was originally told to get a valuation from an insurance company, but none would cooperate. A bank appraisal of the plans would have worked, but we're not taking out a loan. So I suggested a number that many homes can be built for up here, and she agreed that was reasonable. We'll see if that remains true when I get the permit and pay the fee.

Dropped off the latest surveyor's topo with the location of the house at the architectural office so I'm set for the meeting on Tuesday where they will approve or disapprove. I don't see any issues there.
So with those taken care of, I called the excavator, who never had started the drive as he wants to do it all at once, and he said he'll start Wednesday.

Meanwhile, with the weather finally turning nice, I went back to taking down more trees for the house site.

Used the trunk of one tree to make a rustic chair. Still rooted to the ground. More like a bench; it was so large.
More slash to haul off. But the view is wonderful.
