A couple days ago, the township Building Department approved our plans - hurray!!!!
Last Thursday, they called us up and told us our plans were "missing some things," so we added what they wanted over the weekend, and gave the plans back first thing Monday. The very next day, we got the WONDERFUL call that we could come pick up our permits (after paying for them, of course). The day after that, the tree guys called us and said they were in the area and could they cut down our tree IN A HALF HOUR? So much for two to three days notice! We had wanted to chop down a giant bush and have it read for their chipper before they arrived, but considering we didn't know how long we'd be waiting if we said NO, CALL AGAIN ANOTHER DAY, I told them a half hour would be fine.
Yikes, it feelsl ike everything is moving so fast! So now the whole side yard is cleared (minus the fence — gotta keep our baby-containment as long as possible!) and we're ready to get started. Photos to come!
