It's been in the works a while, but today I think is when we'll call it begun: we're adding a building to the home property.
It's to be slightly larger than a two-car garage, with a carport in addition. Those who remember my comments about the garage space at our previous home may be confident they understand why we're doing this. If I had more land it might be a bigger building...
Today the permit application is being generated, and we'll soon schedule some tree removals necessary to clear the building site.
After permits and clearing will come grading, pouring the slab, and construction. Ideally we'll be ready to start using it by Labor Day, given how busy the company is that's doing the work.
