Today I got to the county to get my application for a variance back on track. They needed more information, a septic layout and a bunch more drawings to get things moving. Of course, this all languished well I was experiencing my medical drama. Monday afternoon I meet with the engineer again to get him back on track. I hope to have my part done by then - if I can find the right paperwork in all this mess.
The good news is the assigned planner is confidence we will get the variance, and even two of the setbacks will be smaller than we originally asked. Might even add an additional 100 square feet to the house. I'd take 50 for that matter.
So all I want for Christmas is approval! This Christmas, that is.
