    Update on the house

    Met with the civil engineer on Friday. Think we finally have the building envelope. One more hurtle in that the county requires 2 parking spaces within the set backs. Makes the basement a 2 car garage - for now. Actually, will have an upstairs and a down stairs single car garage! Cannot submit this to the country before May 27 but I also will not have the house plans done by then. Well, I will have my part done but the necessary drawings won't be completed by then.

    Time marches on, albeit slowly on this project! Best news thus far is I can get a bath downstairs. At first we thought the elevations wouldn't work out.

    WooHoo! Progress! Finally.

    Progress is made!

    Sounds like it will likely be a unique house
